Brief Profile: Dr. Pratheesh P. completed his MSc from Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam in 2005 and Ph.D. from University of Kerala in 2013. His doctoral research focused on the understanding of temporal relation between dyke emplacement and shear zone kinematics and its tectonic significance in the South Indian crustal evolution. Soon after his PhD, he joined the Central Lab Facility (CLF), in the University of Kerala as a Technical Officer. There He was in-charge of a Mass spectrometry Laboratory, having LA-GC-LC-ICPMS. Later he was awarded Varghese Kurian Young Scientist fellowship of Kerala State Council Science Technology and Environment (KSCSTE), with which he joined Centre for Geo-Information Science and Technology (CGIST), Trivandrum as a Research Scientist in 2014.
