Department of Earth Sciences
I obtained my masters and PhD degree in Geology from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh and carried out PhD research work in Geochemistry laboratories of National Geophysical Research Institute, Hyderabad as CSIR-Junior Research Fellow. Before joining academia, I worked as Scientific Officer in the Atomic Minerals Directorate for Exploration and Research, Department of Atomic Energy, from 1999 to 2010. For last ten years, I am teaching various subjects in under-graduate (Igneous and Metamorphic petrology, Economic Geology) and post-graduate (Igneous Petrology, Stable isotope geochemistry) levels. I use isotope geochemistry as a tool to study Precambrian lithosphere-hydrosphere-atmosphere and ore forming processes.
