|Brief Profile:||Dr. Sandeep K obtained his Master’s Degree from Govt. College Kasaragod (Kannur University) in 2004 and Ph.D. from Mangalore University in 2011. He is the first rank holder in B.Sc. and M.Sc. Geology. His doctoral research focused on reconstructing Holocene palaeomonsoon/palaeoenvironment of southern India using lacustrine sediments with a multi-proxy approach. He qualified CSIR-UGC NET in Earth Atmospheric, Ocean and Planetary Sciences in 2003 and joined as Junior Research Fellow followed by Senior Research Fellow in Mangalore University. He also has the experience of working as Geologist in Geological Survey of India during 2011-12. He had been working as Assistant Professor in Govt. College Kasaragod (Kannur University) and Govt. College of Engineering Kannur from 2012 to 2016. He joined Central University of Kerala in 2016 as Assistant Professor in the Department of Geology, School of Earth Science Systems.
He is a Fellow of Geological Society of India andMember of Board of Studies of Kannur University. He was awarded International internship on Teaching-Learning and Research at Durham University, United Kingdom by Fostering Linkages between Academic Innovation and Research (FLAIR), New Initiatives in Higher Education, Directorate of Collegiate Education, Government of Kerala.He has successfully completed UGC sponsored research project “A Study on Indian Monsoon Variability during Mid- to Late Holocene Period based on lacustrine sediments from Southern India”. He has presented research papers in many national/international seminars/conferences.
His research interests include reconstruction of palaeoclimatic/palaeoenvironmental conditions of southern India during Holocene Period using lacustrine sediments with the help of proxies like environmental magnetism, organic and inorganic geochemistry, sedimentology and isotopes. He is also engaged in research on palaeolimnology, pedogenesis of tropical soils, particulate pollution and aerosols using environmental magnetism.
