Self-introduction
My primary field of research encompasses structural geology and tectonics. I am currently working on deformation microstructures pertaining shallow crustal faults in Himalayas. My particular interest is elucidating the deformation mechanisms and earthquake nucleation processes in crustal-scale faults.
