Manika Prasad received her B.S. (1978) from St. Xavier's College, Bombay,
India and an M.S. (1983) from University of Kiel, Germany in geology, Ph.D.
(1990) in geophysics from University of Kiel, Germany. Manika's Ph.D. work
focused on attenuation, energy loss mechanisms and velocity dispersion
in dry and fluid saturated sands. After graduation Manika worked as a fellow
at the Indian Institute of Geomagnetism, Bombay, India and as a visiting
scientist for five years in the Mineral Physics Group at the University
of Hawaii on seismic and microstructural properties of reservoir rocks.
A major emphasis of Manika's work at Hawaii was on Acoustic
Microscopy of rocks and ceramic composites. Manika has worked at the Stanford Rockphysics and Borehole
group from 1996 - 2004, CSM Geophysics Department from 2004 - 2007. Since 2007, Manika is an Associate Professor at the Petroleum Engineering Department at CSM. A large part of Manika's work is on clays, shales,
unconsolidated sands, poorly and well consolidated sandstones and chalks, and impedance microstructure
in rocks and glasses.
