Professor Dhananjay Ravat received his B.Sc. degree in geology from Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in geophysics from Purdue University, USA. He has taught and conducted research at Southern Illinois University Carbondale in Illinois, USA (1991-2007) and University of Kentucky on topics pertaining to exploration of the earth and planets with gravity and magnetic fields, solid-earth geophysics, tectonics, and environmental geophysics. He has participated in the development of the first World Digital Magnetic Anomaly Map and the standards for the North American Gravity anomaly database. He has also been instrumental in correcting long-wavelengths of the U.S. and Canadian aeromagnetic anomaly databases, which are important for understanding the magnetic nature of the deep crust and upper mantle. From August 2007, he joined University of Kentucky, where he has been the Chair of Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences from 2009 to 2012. He is presently an associate editor of Near Surface Geophysics, has been an associate editor of Geophysics (2001-2005), and has edited special issues of Seismological Research Letters and The Leading Edge. He is a life member of Geological Society of India (Fellow), American Geophysical Union, Society of Exploration Geophysicists, International Association of Mathematical Geology and a member of American Association for Advancement of Science.
