Ph.D. : 2019, Geology, Presidency University, Kolkata.
M.Sc. : 2012, Applied Geology, Presidency College (under Calcutta University), Kolkata.

Professional Career:

2019 - Present   Research Associate, National Centre for Earth Science Studies.
2016 - 2019 Senior Research Fellow, Presidency University, Kolkata.
2013 - 2016 Junior Research Fellow, Presidency University, Kolkata.
2012 - 2013 Worked as a Project Scientist in “National Geomorphological and Lineament Mapping on 1:50,000 scale, India” project (sponsored by ISRO, Govt. of India).

Research Interest:

My areas of expertise include Ore Petrology, Structural Geology, Geochemistry and Geochronology. The research is focused on tectono-stratigraphic and geochronological evolution of Precambrian Terrain as well as much younger Phanerozoic terrains. Mainly the petrological and structural study followed by geochemical and geochronological characterization of the rocks. My interests on geochemistry, structural geology, and tectonics helps me to understand problems of Precambrian to phanerozoic geology in a holistic manner.
