“The sedimentary rocks preserve within them the record of earth’s surface and atmospheric history. The eroding sediments at any given time provide sampling of the exposed crust and are influenced to a large extent by the earth surface processes, tectonics and climate.
My research interest is in understanding the influence of earth surface processes on mineralogical and geochemical composition of sediments and provenance characterization. I have begun to study evolution of delta and coastal processes. My ongoing research is on understanding of macro and micro level mineral/geochemical weathering processes and multiproxy study for reconstruction of Quaternary climate and tectonics history.
