Sunil’s major research areas include shallow gas, natural gas hydrate systems and gas seeps. Specifically, fluid migration pathways and their development, gas hydrate stability modeling, heat flow modeling, and gas hydrate system development. Sunil holds a PhD degree in Geophysics from UiT-The Arctic University of Norway and a MSc degree in Marine Geophysics from Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kerala, India.
He studied subsurface fluid migration features, shallow gas and gas hydrate systems in the SW Barents and Northern North Seas during his PhD utilizing seismic methods and numerical models. He is currently a post-doctoral researcher at CAGE under the MOCA project focusing on gas hydrate systems in the Arctic.
