She joined the department in summer 2021. She received her master’s degree in Applied Geophysics from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB), undergraduate degree in Physics from Jadavpur University. Her M.Sc. project was on determination of crustal structure beneath Aravalli-Delhi fold belt region using receiver function analysis. Her current work is based on the long-period waves generated due to the resonance of fluid-filled cracks. She is working on generating, characterizing and analyzing the Crack waves, also known as the Krauklis waves whose far field radiation is known as the long period wave.
