  Academic Identity

Dr. Sunil K. Roy received his Ph.D from Osmania University, Hyderabad, in 2016. As a postdoctoral fellow, he visited the Earthquake Research Institute, University of Tokyo, Japan, for a year (2017-2018). Dr. Roy research interest lies in characterizing the crustal and mantle anisotropy, and inferring the deep mantle and CMB structure. He worked extensively in understanding the past and present mantle deformation in the stable and actively deformed regions of the Indian continental plate and subduction regions. One of his significant contribution involves finding evidence for azimuthal anisotropy in the D’’ layer beneath Southeastern Asia. Another significant contribution involves marking the edge and thickness of western Pacific LLSVP.
