Dr. Anand K. Pandey received M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Geology from the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. He carried out Ph.D. and post-doctoral research at Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology, Dehradun and Department of Geology, ETH Zentrum, Zurich. He has been Adjunct Faculty at Dept. of Geological Sciences, SDSU, San Diego, CA-USA during 2010-2011.
He is trying to understand structural architecture and geodynamics evolution of Himalayan and other orogen, aspects of neotectonics including tectonic-geomorphology, active fault mapping, and paleoseismology in various tectonic settings. Understanding tectonic-climate interaction in large scale terrain evolution, localization of erosion and associated hazards. He is exploring shallow sub-surface processes through geomorphic and sedimentological proxies (including liquefaction induced soft sediment deformation and their trigger mechanism) and engineering geological aspects using GPR & MASWA for imaging civic resource/infrastructure and associated hazard.
