SPECIALIZATION: Environmental Chemistry, Water Resources Engineering, Hazards and Disaster Management
RESEARCH BACKGROUND:
Based on primary as well as secondary data, PhD thesis (in Department of Civil Engineering from IIT Guwahati) focuses physico-chemical properties of sediments including contamination status (by laboratory analysis), sediment budget, role of geotechnical and geochemical properties of bank materials in erosion (by laboratory analysis followed by statistical analysis) , bank line shifting, river bank erosion, braiding and land use land cover of the Brahmaputra river in Assam (by remote sensing and GIS tools). One objective of the research was to understand geoenvironmental changes of Brahmaputra in Assam and seeking solution to the bank erosion problem.
