Project Strengthening the Research Ecosystem for Sustainability Research in India, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

This interdisciplinary research project is prompted by the persistent neglect of environmental sustainability by nationally and regionally sponsored agricultural research programs designed to enhance food security in India. This project goes outside the usual sources of analysis and uses feminist philosophy of science to draw lessons and build capacities for the integration of climate policy with agriculture-food development policy in India. It analyses the environmental values and conceptualisations in science, development interventions and outcomes.

Project U-Pb surface depth profiling

Principal Investigator:

I have several projects in progress using a method by which we target specifically the outer-most unpolished zircon surface. The analyses of the surfaces contain data for the youngest-most mineral growth. I have applied this approach to look at age differences between the rim and core for zircon from the Fish Canyon Tuff. A second projects in collaboration with Mary Leech (SFSU) is targeting the youngest phase of metamorphic zircon growth from samples located in the Great Himalaya Sequence deformed and exhumed along the Zanskar Shear Zone.
