Dr. M. Ram Mohan received M.Sc and PhD degrees from Osmania University, Hyderabad. His professional research career started with working in a research group in NGRI to understand the gold potential and depositional environment in banded iron formations (BIFs) in various Archean greenstone belts of Dharwar Craton. As a member of various research projects executed in NGRI, he worked in different parts of Dharwar Craton to study the Archean crustal growth processes. He also worked for some of the exploration projects in India (for base metals in Rajasthan, in collaboration with HZL) and abroad (for gold exploration work in NE parts of Madagascar, in association with NMDC). Dr. Ram Mohan had one year Post-Doctoral research experience at Laurentian University, Canada, to work on the “Genesis of adakites and TTG magmas from the Dharwar Craton, India, and the role of fluid mobile elements in the genesis of Archean adakites and TTGs”. He is conferred with Krishnan Gold Medal for the year 2012 by Indian Geophysical Union. He received CSIR-Raman Research Fellowship for the year 2014-15 to work in the SIMS laboratory at GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, Potsdam, Germany.
Currently he is occupied as the Principal Scientist in Geochemistry Division. Dr. Mohan’s research interests mainly revolve around understanding the Archean tectonics through the application of field and laboratory methods. He extensively uses major, minor and trace elements geochemistry, apart from radiogenic isotopes, U-Pb zircon geochronology to understand Archean crustal growth processes, interrelationship between the magmatism and gold metallogeny. He has been the reviewer for various international journals like Precambrian Research, Gondwana Research, JAES, JEES, Episodes etc..
