Hello there! I'm glad you are here. Welcome!
I'm Supratim and I am curious about everything in this world and beyond! On this site, you can learn about my interests and my past and present research work.
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in cosmochemistry at the University of California, Davis. I have completed my Bachelor's & Master’s degree in Geology from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee.
My research interest is in isotope cosmochemistry and meteoritics. I study things which are literally out of this world! They are extraterrestrial materials like meteorites and cosmic dust which hold clues about the origin and evolution of the solar system. I am specifically interested in knowing more about the processes occurring in the early solar system. The slideshow above lists some of the exciting questions I would like to help answer through my research over the course of my lifetime.
