French Sandwich Ph.D. fellowship to Pranab
Shri Pranab Das has been awarded the French Sandwich Ph.D. fellowship for the academic year 2007-08. He plans to work at Institut Universitaire Europeen de la Mar, Brest for six months (September 2007-March, 2008) with Dr. Christophe Hemond and his group on isotope studies (mainly U, Pb, Rb and Sr) of Indian Ocean basalts. This opportunity will help him to characterise the Indian Ocean basalts and to compare the results with other oceanic basalts for a better understanding of the large-scale magmatic processes in the oceans. Shri Das is at present pursuing his doctoral programmes under the supervision of Dr. Sridhar D. Iyer, on 'Geomorphology and Petrology of basalts from the CIOB'. During the course of his investigations, Shri. Das has learnt several softwares, processing of petrological data and their interpretations. These, he adds, will bring out some interesting results very soon. He also acquired knowledge in handling different analytical instruments. Shri Das has published five papers in International and National journals.
