Research Interests

  • My research interests cover awide range of disciplines including geochemistry of natural waters,hydrogeology, igneous geochemistry and petroleum geology. My academic researchwas rooted hydrogeochemistry involving major ions trace and toxic elements forthe purpose of modeling and managing water quality and quantity processes.
  • Sedimentary geochemistry:sedimentary rocks and sediments are used as a tracer for sediment provenance,as palaeoenvironmental indicator, as indicator of diagenetic processes.
  • Hydrogeochemistry: study of thechemical composition of groundwater, surface water and drinking water
  • Isotope geochemistry: applicationof stable isotopes (H, O, C, S) to the study of rocks and water.


  • Awarded by CAS-TWAS Fellowship 2014
  • Extensive field work in joint project of ITP, WAPDA, Pak METand SPARCO in Gilgit-Baltistan region, specifically on high elevation glacierssuch as Bharpu & Bualter, Passu, Ghargo, Sachen etc.
  • Determine the cause of water quality deterioration andweathering process from upstream to downstream in Indus River BasinPakistan. 
  • Evaluate the distribution Arsenic contamination along IndusRiver basin from its origin till to Panjnad Pakistan, in both surface andground water.
  • Incorporate the geogenic and anthropogenic origin of arsenicand other trace and toxic elements in drinking waters of Indus River Basin fromKharmong till to Panjnad.
  • Worked and skilled myself with water quality analysis equipmentin the Key Laboratory of Tibetan Environment Changes and Land SurfaceProcesses, Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences,Beijing, China
  • Learn state of the art hydrogeochemical investigationtechniques in Key Laboratory of Alpine Ecology and Biodiversity, Institute ofTibetan Plateau Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China
