Petrology, Isotope Geochemistry
Geology, Orogenesis and Tectonics
am chiefly interested in the evolution of Mountain Belts.
Most of my research is centered around the Himalayas
and integrate extensive fieldwork with structural, petrological
and isotopic studies to unravel problems related to
correlation, rifting, collision, deformation and metamorphism
within the mountain belts. At present I am working on
the two extremities of Himalaya: in Ladakh-Karakoram
region of NW Himalaya and in the eastern Himalayan syntaxis
in NE Himalaya.
Tectonics and Rodinia Assembly in the eastern Gondwanaland
additional research interest is in correlating the Rodinian
Assembly events in eastern Gondwanaland, encompassing
India, Australia and Antarctica. I am carrying out field
and isotopic study in Central and Western India to correlate
the major tectonic belts of Central and Western India
and to document a Grenvillian collisional event between
the Dharwar and the Bundelkhand cratons during the Rodinian
