    Research Statement

    I am a Coastal Geomorphologist and I am interested in the analysis and study of coastal landforms and landscapes and how these have changed over the course of the Holocene. My research has examined the evolution of the late Holocene (c. last 4,000 years) Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta, focussing on sedimentary provenance and depositional processes. I utilise geochemistry (e.g., XRF, XRD), sedimentology, and statistical modelling to understanding sedimentary dynamics.
