What are your EPSP research interests?
Lunar mineralogy, planetary geomorphology, spectroscopy, remote sensing and GIS
What influenced you to study EPSP?
Although I accidently ended up in EPSP, my interest kept increasing once I entered this domain. During my undergrad years, while reading the book Physical Geography by Strahler and Strahler, I developed my first spark for EPSP. With time, I got deeply fascinated by the natural processes, landforms, and the field adventures that are an integral part of such studies (and researchers are actually paid for carrying out these adventures!). I was in awe when I first saw the high-resolution images of Martian landforms during my first research project. Ever since then, the exotic landforms of the Moon, Mars, and other planetary bodies and the complexities of planetary scale processes have been fueling my interest in EPSP research.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I love to read, write, practice climbing, and plan Himalayan treks. If nothing else, I can be seen hanging out with friends and just chilling.
