Name: Anubhav Preet Kaur
Name of the supervisor: Dr Parth R. Chauhan
Research Focus: My research focuses on identification and understanding evidences of hominin occupation in the Pinjore Formation of north-western India. The Pinjore Formation is the most extensive Early Pleistocene deposit in the Indian Subcontinent. Using GIS and remote sensing I am currently working on developing various models for accurate site identification and documentation in the region. My work also uses vertebrate palaeontology, Palaeolithic archaeology and geology to interpret and understand patterns of hominin occupation in the region and the human-animal-environment interface.
