Research Interests:
High-pressure mineral physics

Understanding physics and chemistry of Earth and planetary interiors through direct examination of material properties under high pressure-temperature conditions using a wide spectrum of techniques available in synchrotron and neutron facilities and in-house laboratories.

Understanding the deep carbon cycle in the Earth’s interior with a focus on carbon in Earth’s core.

My research takes a two-pronged approach: using the multianvil apparatus for sample syntheses and high pressure-temperature measurements on large volume samples and the diamond anvil cell for determination of elastic and acoustic properties, combining with laser, X-ray and microanalytical techniques.
