    About him

    I am an extensively read and experienced professional with a Ph.D. in Hydrogeology with nationally and internationally accepted and published journals to my credit. I possess profound knowledge of field investigation and parameters like Topography, Geology, Hydrogeology, land use/land cover etc. I am well versed in the collection of resistivity data by geophysical methods and interpretation of resistivity data by inverse slope method considering all parameters like Geology, Hydrogeology and Topographical conditions. I have obtained in-depth knowledge of slope stability analysis, rainwater harvesting, water conservation management and sustainable integrated water resource management. I have rich experience of geological mapping techniques, interpretation of remote sensing data, soil and water quality analysis techniques and interpretations of water quality. I am well trained in Geotechnical Instrumentation for Engineers, and I am capable of handling test analysis and G.I.S applications like Arc - Info- Arc View & AutoCAD. I am adept at working with computers. I am backed up with great interpersonal and communication skills, and capable of producing results in a team as well as independently.
