What led you to Earth and Space science?

Way back in my school studies, I was curious to know about the shining stars and how they have positioned in the Universe. Later, I have chosen Geology as the major for my graduation and specialised on lower-crustal granulites during my Post-Graduation studies. Still then, the tectono-magmatic and metamorphic evolution of Earth and other planetary bodies fascinates me.

How long have you been a member of AGU and why did you join?

Not yet a member, but co-authored papers presented in various AGU Fall-meetings.

What are you working on now?

Currently, I am working on high-grade rocks of lower crustal origin and their petrological and geochemical characterisation to understand the processes that caused the planetary differentiation.
