Research Area

I am a structural geologist and metamorphic petrologist in the Department of Earth Sciences. My research interests lie in augmenting and understanding convergent plate margins processes. I am engaged in studying intricate feedback relationship of thermo-tectonic processes from the archive of naturally deformed and metamorphosed rocks, exposed along ancient plate boundaries, using a combination of macro-to-micro-scale fabric analyses and theoretical modeling. An intriguing component of my research is to evaluate and reconcile the impact of crustal accretionary processes in controlling crustal rheology that significantly control temporal – spatial architecture of the continents and secular change in climate.
