ABOUT ME

I was born and brought up in the district of Keonjhar in Odisha state, India. Since my childhood, I had been attracted to collecting rocks of different color and shapes which perhaps drive my interest to pursue my career in Geology. Recently, I got my doctorate degree from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) (recognised as Institute of Eminence) and I am specialized in Structural Geology and Tectonic.
