DEPARTMENT_STAFF.COMPLETE_CV
Iftikhar Ahmad is an early career researcher (Assistant Professor) who works at the Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh (India). He has obtained his M.Sc. degree from the Hans Raj College, University of Delhi, Delhi. He did his M.Sc. dissertation project on the Paleoproterozoic carbonate rocks of the Bijawar Group, Madhya Pradesh (India) under the supervision of Prof. Partha Pratim Chakraborty. He pursued doctoral research (Ph.D.) under the guidance of Prof. M.E.A. Mondal (National Geoscience Awardee). After completing the Ph.D., he joined the Physical Research Laboratory (A Unit of Department of Space, I.S.R.O., Government of India), Ahmedabad as a Post-Doctoral Fellow under Prof. Jyotiranjan S. Ray (currently Director of National Centre for Earth Science Studies, Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India). His research focuses on the Precambrian basement rocks of the Aravalli and Bundelkhand Cratons (India) that span in age from Paleoarchean to Paleoproterozoic. Through his research he looks forward to understanding the processes responsible for the formation and evolution of the Earth's continental crust vis-a-vis evolution of the mantle and plate tectonics. He has published his research findings in reputed journals including Geoscience Frontiers, Journal of Asian Earth Sciences, Geological Society London, Springer-Nature, etc.
