Dr. Ashutosh Pandey

Assistant Professor

Department of Earth Sciences

Research Area

My research interests lie in understanding the nature of the Earth’s mantle and its evolution. I use the mineralogy and geochemistry of magmatic rocks as a proxy to probe into the Earth’s mantle and infer geodynamic processes. I am also interested in understanding the origin, economic potential, and composition of the mantle reservoir tapped by continental flood basalts/large igneous provinces and associated mafic dyke swarms
