Aniket Dhar

Aniket Dhar is a second-year PhD student broadly interested in using geochemistry and mineralogy in carbonate archives like cave calcite formations (speleothems/ stalagmites) to reconstruct past and observed climatic trends. His current research work is focused on reconstructing the last 500 years of southern Indian hydroclimate changes by analyzing the stable isotopic (δ18O and δ13C) composition in a speleothem from southern India. Additionally, Aniket is interested in understanding the kinetics of calcite precipitation and dissolution in karst systems and the chemical exchange during the growth of speleothems using the mineralogy and the trace element (Mg/Ca, Sr/Ca, Ba/Ca) composition of stalagmites. Aniket earned his Bachelor's and Master's in Geology from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Bhopal.
