My research interests include lower-crustal processes, tectonics, role of fluids along regional structures, high-grade metamorphism, micro-scale geochronology and geochemistry with emphasis on the high-temperature/pressure paleo-tectonic activity on the lower-crust of Gondwana. Currently 5 PhD researchers, one project assistant and a post doctoral level research associates are wroking with me.

I was awarded the Monbusho (Monbukagakusho) Scholarship by Japanese Government, 1999 for carrying out my PhD research at Okayama University. My post doctoral research included about one year experiance at Chonbuk National University (South Korea) Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2004 and two years of JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship by Japanese Government in 2005. Follwed by that I worked as research professor in Brain Korea 21 project at Yonsei University, South Korea from January 2007 to July 2008 before joining Indian Institute of Science as Assistant Professor in July 2008.
