Assistant Professor

Department of Earth Sciences

Research Area

I received my Ph.D. in Micropaleontology in the year 2003 at MLS University, Udaipur. Further, I continued research work in MLS University and Pondicherry University as Principal Investigator in DST, New Delhi sponsored major research projects sanctioned under FTSYS. I have conducted field and laboratory studies based on Ostracode fauna collected from various parts of India. My research focuses on Taxonomy, Biostratigraphy, Paleobiogeography, Palaeoenvironmental/Paleoclimatological/Paleoecological reconstructions, shell geochemistry etc. I joined Pondicherry University as an Assistant Professor in the year 2010 and since have involved in academic and administrative activities, training and guiding students in field studies and research work.
