Dr. Anand Kumar Pandey

Dr. A.K. Pandey received M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Geology from the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. He carried out Ph.D. and post-doctoral research at Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology, Dehradun and Department of Geology, ETH Zentrum, Zurich. He has been Adjunct Faculty at Dept. of Geological Sciences, SDSU, San Diego, CA-USA during 2010-2011.

He is trying to understand structural architecture of Himalayan orogen, aspects of neotectonics including paleoseismology and tectonic-geomorphology in Himalaya and other regions with varying tectonic settings. He is also involve in understanding role of tectonic -climate interaction in large scale terrain evolution and localization of erosion causng hazard associated with the slope failure processes. His other research interest  is understanding shallow sub-surface processes by imaging and through geomorphic and sedimentological proxies  including liquefaction induced soft sediment deformation  and trigger mechanism in different tectonic setting, their paleoseismic significance during different geological period., hazard associated with the use of shallow subsurface for developing civic resource/infrastructure.
