Biographical Info

I am a PhD candidate (August 2015 - present) in the Department of Earth Science, Rice University. I am interested in studying Sedimentology and low temperature geochemistry and also how these fields are applicable in hydrocarbon exploration. Apart from these geological interests, I am particularly interested in travelling to different places and trying different types of cuisines around the world.
