Research Contributions:

After receiving the Ph. D. Degree in Botany in the year 1992 on the topic “Contributions to the Triassic Palaeobotany and Stratigraphy of Peninsular India”, worked as a Research Associate of CSIR. After joining Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) as a Junior Scientific Officer in the year 1994, the research contributions are specifically focused on the studies of fossil calcareous algae from the Phanerozoic sediments of India. Significant contributions have been made on the morphology, biostratigraphy, palaeoecology and palaeobathymetry of fossil calcareous algae from different sedimentary basins of India and abroad namely from the Ordovician of Spiti, Cretaceous of Mussourie Syncline, Cretaceous and Palaeocene of Cauvery Basin, Palaeocene and Eocene successions of South Shillong (Meghalaya), Oligocene of southwestern Kutch, Middle Miocene of Little Andaman Island, Middle Pliocene of Car Nicobar Island, and also from the Early Oligocene of NE Libya. The results and interpretations of the contributions have been published in various Peer Reviewed National and International journals having impact factors. Research work also has been carried out on the studies of plant megafossils and palynomorphs (both miospores and megaspores) from the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic sediments of India namely from the Damodar Valley Basin, Mahanadi valley Basin and Rajmahal Basin. Interesting and significant data have been generated and the results and interpretations have been published in various Peer Reviewed National and International journals. As recognition of significant research contributions received several awards in the Institute and also worked as a Visiting Scientist in the Institute of Geosciences, University of Tübingen, Germany after availing International Exchange Programme between INSA (Indian National Science Academy) and DFG (German Science Foundation). Recently he was nominated by IODP (MOES) India (Funded by IODP, US Implementing Organization and NSF, USA) and worked as a Shipboard Scientist in the IODP Expedition 342 (Newfoundland, Canada).


Contributions to teaching, promotion and management of science:
Apart from research activities, worked as a Member of Programming Committee in the Golden Jubilee Conference on “Physical and Biological Changes across the Major Geological Boundaries” held at BSIP from November 15 – November 17, 1996. Later on, worked as a Member of Programming Committee in the Symposium on “Palynology in Fossil Fuel Exploration” jointly organized by Geological Society of India, Bangalore and Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP), Lucknow held at BSIP, Lucknow during November 14-15, 2007 and “XXI Indian Colloquium on Micropalaeontolgy and Stratigraphy” held during November 16-17, 2007 at BSIP, Lucknow. Apart from that worked as an Organizing Secretary of the Field Workshop in the “Indo-Brazilian International Symposium on Glimpses of Gondwana Research”. In addition, as outreach activities acted as judge in Children’s Science Congress (National, State and District levels). Actively participated in the DST Sponsored Second Foundation Training Programme in 2005 organized by Indian Institute of Public Administration, New Delhi and as an extraordinary and successful trainee was selected by DST for the ten days exposure to Scientific Labs/Institutions in Taiwan and Singapore under “National Programme for Training of Scientists and Technologists in Government Sector” sponsored by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. Participated as a trainee in the Scientists and Administrators Interface Training Programme on Disaster Management” at Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administrators, Mussouri. Successfully completed the 6th Proficiency Course on Modern Practices in Petroleum Exploration in at KDMIPE, ONGC, Dehradun. As an invited speaker delivered popular lectures and special lectures in different schools, colleges and universities. Apart from that as a resource person delivered lectures in UGC Refresher Courses in different universities. Chaired/Co-Chaired number of National and International Conferences in India and abroad (Palaeoenvironment – Climate Change, 8th International Congress Pacific Neogene Stratigraphy, 2003, University of Chiang Mai, Thailand; XXII Indian Colloquium on Micropalaeontology and Stratigraphy, 2009, National College, Tiruchirapalli; 10th International Symposium on Fossil Alage, 2011, Department of Geology, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania). Recently has been elected as a Member of Executive Council of Palaeobotanical Society, Lucknow. As a regular reviewer reviewed number of research papers for the journals Current Science, Journal of Geological Society of India and Asian Journal of Earth Sciences.
