Research Interest

My research interest is to study past environmental changes quantitatively so that the results can be used for better understanding physics of earth's various components such as cryosphere, ocean and atmosphere. I have been using various geochemical and geophysical measures to obtain high-resolution data spatially and temporary since Earth's climate is very complex and non-linear system and hence it requires comprehensive approaches. Samples that I have used are Antarctic ice cores, Deep Sea and Lake sediments, Corals, Tree rings, and so forth. Since I have been also studying sea-level changes extensively, assessing human migrations and climate impacts on cultural developments also have been tackled. Recently started projects includes assessing stability of Antarctic ice sheets, Sun-Climate linkage, Tropical oceanic role for climate changes and Coral-AOGCM based Pacific oceanic changes.
