Senior Doctoral Research Fellow at IISER, Pune
I graduated with a major in Geography and pursued MSc in GIS and Remote Sensing from the University of Greenwich, UK. After working in GIS and then in Software Quality Engineering domains for around twelve years, I got back to academics. I completed a master’s in Archaeology from Deccan College, Pune, India. At present, I am a senior doctoral research fellow at IISER, Pune. I am a member of an empanelled team of consultants (Tejaswini Aphale Associates – TAA) appointed by the Directorate of Archaeology & Museum, Maharashtra State, India. My interest lies in interdisciplinary studies in archaeology such as those involving spatial analysis, artefact typologies, and cultural interpretation.
