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 World Digital Magnetic Anomaly Maps 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 has been
Associate Editor of Near Surface Geophysics (2009-2017) and Geophysics (2001-2005),
and has edited special issues of Seismological Research Letters, The Leading Edge, and
the International Journal of Earth Sciences. 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.
He has published over 100 reviewed publications, many of which can be found on the
