PhD Title Generation of Granitic Magmas in the Lower Crust: A Natural Example from Mt Daniel; Fiordland, New-Zealand
Research Interests:

  • How and where the granitic magmas formed?
  • Are granitic plutons simply upper crustal phenomena, resulting from assembly of melt increments from the lower crust?
  • Are those melt increments mixed in the lower crust or does that mixing occur in upper crustal reservoirs where mafic and silicic magmas possibly interact?
  • Understanding of lower crustal processes by mainly using Lu-Hf isotopes in zircon

PhD Title:
Greenstone metamorphism, geochemistry, ore mineralogy and fluid evolution of the granitoid-hosted gold mineralization at Jonnagiri, eastern Dharwar Craton

Research Interests:

  • Genetic modeling of orogenic gold deposits by integrated studies of structure, metamorphism, geochemistry, ore mineralogy and fluid evolution
  • Genesis of barite vein deposits: Characterization of ore deposit environments
  • Understanding the link between craton scale metallogeny and tectonothermal events.
  • Investigation of the ore fluid localization and enrichment of metals.
