Area of Specialization

Tectonic Geomorphology : Study of the interplay between subsurface i.e tectonic and surface processes that shape the landscape in regions of active deformation and at time scales ranging from days to millions of years .

Active Tectonics: :How are tectonic processes occurring at the present day in terms of spatial distribution.

Palaeoclimate :How the climate changed during the Quaternary period.

Natural hazards :How are tectonic processes occurring at the present day in terms of spatial distribution.

Optical Stimulated Luminescence Dating: A method which use to document Quaternary sediments.
