I am interested in several aspects of how the Earth functions. Primarily, my research focuses on extracting information about climatological, oceanographic, and geological systems from observations and proxy archives. I am interested in understanding how the Earth's climate changed in the past, what caused these changes, and how this information can tell us about future climate change. I am also interested in earthquakes and how neotectonic information can help us anticipate hazards.
I received my PhD in May 2016 from the Department of Geological Sciences at the at the University of Texas at Austin where I worked with Terry Quinn. I obtained my MS in Geological Sciences in 2012 at the same department. In 2010, I graduated with a major in chemical engineering (and a minor in procrastination) from the National Institute of Technology Karnataka in Surathkal, a small coastal town in southwestern India. I am originally from Bengaluru, India and have spent time working at Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad and the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru.
