Manasij earned his Ph.D. in Geological Sciences (stratigraphy/sedimentary geology) from University of Texas, and M.Sc. in applied Geology (focusing on tectonics) from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. He received his B.Sc. in Geology from Presidency College, University of Calcutta, India. Manasij has worked as part of the energy industry in deepwater hydrocarbon exploration and field development in Indian offshore and in deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Manasij maintains a broad research interest in sediment transport, sediment deposition and architecture of clastic sedimentary deposits. His current research at Institute for Geophysics focuses on understanding architecture of gas hydrate bearing deepwater deposits in Gulf of Mexico, and the relationship between stratigraphy and nature of gas hydrate accumulations, using seismic data, well logs, sediment cores, and experimental data.
