My research interests are diverse and multi-disciplinary, and integrate activities from traditional and non-traditional disciplines of earth sciences such as sedimentology, trace metal and isotope geochemistry, paleoclimatology and paleoceanography. I use a combination of geochemical and sedimentological techniques to understand the intrinsic relationship between earth's surface processes, landforms and its relation to contemporaneous climate. Lately, application and development of trace metals and radiogenic isotopes have been integral to my research and I plan to continue their application in my future research endeavors. My interdisciplinary research activities intended to advance the understanding of earth's present and past surface processes, our environment, and earth's history.
