  Academic Identity

Dr. Anita Devi received her B.Sc. and M.Tech from Kurukshetra Univerisity, Haryana. She completed her Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, Uttarakhand in 2019. During her doctoral research, she worked on various electrical and electromagnetic prospecting methods to deciphered resistivity structures. Her Ph.D. research was focused on 3D (3-Dimensional) individual and joint inversion of magnetotelluric (MT), Radio magnetotelluric and Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) data. She is currently working as Scientist at CSIR-NGRI, in magnetotelluric group. She works on all the aspects of Magnetotelluric (acquisition, processing, 3D modelling and inversion). She is interested in delineating the 3D resistivity subsurface structures for exploration and tectonic studies. Her earlier work focus on the geodynamic studies of Himalayan region.  Currently she is working on 3D MT studies of both the Central Indian Tectonic Zone and the Himalaya region. She has published research papers in reputed national and international journals and participated in several International workshops.
