My research interests look at the earth observations of modern sedimentary environments to undertand its impact on ecosystems, human livlihoods and the preserved stratigraphic record. A few topics of interests include

  1. Source-to-sink 
  2. Plastic pollution
  3. Coastal Change
  4. Water resources
  5. Education
