Professor Mitra's research interests include field-based structural studies aimed at deciphering the tectonic evolution of mountain belts, finite strain and strain history analysis aimed at understanding large scale deformational patterns in mountain belts, and microstructural and textural studies to determine mechanisms in rocks and its implications for large-scale mechanics of deformation.
