Trishit Ruj, PD
(JSPS Fellowship(PD))
Research topics: Early Martian tectonic evolution
Research is aimed to envisage Martian heat loss mechanism through surface signatures. My postdoctoral study includes investigating the timings of the early Martian tectonic structures and analysing the morphometry of those tectonic structures on a global context.
