Research Interests:
Understanding the genesis of the basic sciences and technologies through archaeological sources. The archaeological sources are generated through field investigations such as systematic exploration and excavation. Besides, understanding the process of peopling of South Asia and cultural dispersal through the ages with the help of archaeogenetic records and scientific investigations is the objective of the recent research. Artefacts and ecofacts collected systematically from various archaeological sites are subjected to various scientific analyses such as Strontium, Stable Isotope, Starch Grain, Lipid profile, etc. to understand ancient diet, health and migration.
