participated in several archaeological explorations, excavation, conservation and preservation programme, organised by Archaeological Survey of India as well as Kerala Council for Historical Research. Published number of article in national and international journals and also presented paper in national and international seminars. Presently, I am pursuing part time Ph. D programme under the supervision of Prof. K.P. Rao, at University of Hyderabad on the topic entitled as “ Pre and Proto Historic Investigations in Dindi and Musi River Valley ” and carried out extensive field work for my M. Phil dissertation entitled as “Tombs of the Dead and Cult of the Living: Megalithic Survivals at Kuthanur Region-Kerala, and later also for Ph.D. work. I have conducted several rounds of field work including filed walking, field survey, archival research etc. in my study area. My field experience has allowed me to gain valuable insights into how people live and to understand wide range of environments. During the period of Post Graduation Diploma in Archaeology at Institute of Archaeology (Red Fort-Delhi), got chance to work with the academic experts in the field of archaeology and anthropology who taught me the value of studying and preserving the archaeological sites. These experience have also helped me to develop a good skill which are invaluable in the field of Anthropology and Archaeology. I had worked as Research Associate and Faculty of Archaeology in Kerala Council for Historical Research ( KCHR ) from 22/03/2017 to 03/09/2017. Since then, attempted to co-ordinate the Post Graduate diploma in Archaeology course. Apart from this, directly interfered into internal and external administration of the Pattanam Archaeological site and organized Flood Relief Camp at Pattanam-KCHR during my tenure
