Ravi is a PhD Candidate at the Centre for Exploration Targeting. He completed his BSc and MSc studies in Earth Sciences at the VU University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. During his BSc, he followed the minor Resource Engineering at the University of Technology in Delft, and studied for his BSc-thesis the magma chamber processes of the Kyra eruption sequence (Nisyros Volcano, Greece). During his MSc, the tectono-stratigraphical and geochemical evolution of the Cenozoic Kozak Magmatic Province in Western Anatolia. Ravi did an exchange semester focussed on economic geology with the ETH Zürich, and studied for his MSc-thesis pyrites in the Archean Overman Gold Deposit in Suriname to put constraints on the provenance of sulphur-bearing fluids.
During his graduate studies, Ravi worked as an assistant in an artisanal metalworking company and as a freelance tutor in various high-school courses.

Ravi began his PhD with CET in November 2019 under the supervision of Steffen Hagemann, Chris Fisher, Tony Kemp, Nico Thébaud and Marco Fiorentini. The aim of his research project is to constrain the petrogenetic evolution of intrusive rocks in the Dorothy Hills Greenstone Belt (Yamarna Terrane, Yilgarn Craton, WA) and the metallogenic evolution of the Gruyere gold deposit. (Dorothy Hills Greenstone Belt). This study will use a combination of fieldwork, petrographical, geochemical and geochronological methods to better understand the geological evolution of the eastern Yilgarn Craton.

In his free time, he likes wrestling, climbing and travelling with his motorcycle.
