About the Author

Dr. Hetu Sheth (1972 - ) is a Professor of Igneous Petrology and Volcanology in the Department of Earth Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay, Mumbai). He earned his B.Sc. (Geology) from Mumbai University in 1992, and his M.Sc. (Applied Geology) in 1994 and PhD in 1998 from IIT Bombay. He then did post-doctoral work at the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL, Ahmedabad, India), the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), the University of Hawaii (USA), and the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (TIFR, Mumbai). He was Deputy Website Manager of www.mantleplumes.org (2003-05), Associate, Indian Academy of Sciences (2003-07), and Associate Editor of the Journal of Earth System Science (2004-07). He has published and reviewed many tens of papers, co-edited two research volumes, and won several awards including the Indian National Science Academy (INSA) Young Scientist Medal (2003), the IIT Bombay Young Investigator Award (2007), the Indian Geophysical Union (IGU) Krishnan Medal (2010), the National Geoscience Award of the Ministry of Mines, Govt. of India (2010), and the M.
