Dr. Ramachandran's research interests are in the application of geophysical methods to image near surface and deep crustal structure. Recent projects include, characterizing the northern Cascadia subduction zone structure from P- and S-wave tomographic velocity models and seismic tomography studies of the Charlevoix Seismic Zone.

Current projects include imaging the velocity structure and thickness of the permafrost layer at the Mallik gas hydrate field in the Mackenzie Delta of north-western Canadian Arctic and shear wave tomography studies of northern Cascadia subduction zone.
