Research Interests
My field of research includes sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, and basin analysis. Proterozoic basins (the Vindhyan, Pranhita Godavari, Marwar and Kaladghi ) of India are my favorite domain of activities. To develop the basic models I also frequently visit coastal settings. Microbial mat, both in carbonate (stromatolites and microbial laminites) and siliciclastics rocks, has now emerged as a major field of my research. Additionally, Cretaceous basins of India are gradually occupying more of my time. Geochemical analyses are also becoming important in my research work.
