My research is focused on developing regionally adjustable GMPEs (Ground Motion Prediction Equations), Fourier spectral models and ground motion duration models. My current research is also aimed at investigating various unresolved issues within the domain of engineering seismology mainly the source models vis-à-vis widely debated issue of site-specific attenuation kappa.
