Objective


I am basically a Marine Geologist, obtained Ph. D. degree in Marine Geology in the year 2003. Presently I am working as a senior Geophysicist for EGS Survey Pvt Ltd, India. I have proficient knowledge and intense experience in submarine cable and pipeline route surveys, offshore site surveys, pipeline inspections and Unexploded Ordnance search operations in marine environment. I can handle the digital or analogue sonar and shallow seismic systems efficiently. Also, I have profound experience in handling software like CODA Geosurvey, Discover, C-View and AutoCAD.



I am looking for more challenging career opportunities in my field of competence.
