Sedimentary geology, including clastic sedimentology, sedimentary petrology, tectonics and stratigraphy, basin analysis and provenance studies of sequences deposited primarily in orogenic systems. He continues to work on (1) aspects related to petroleum source rock and reservoir potentials in Carboniferous Midland Basin of Texas and Cenozoic sequences of the Himalayan foreland basin; and (2) generating mineralogical profiles of arsenic contaminated sediments at foreland basins of the Himalayas and the Appalachians.
