Dr.Aravinda Ravibhanu is CEO of Eco Astronomy Inc global network and senior research scientist at  high-altitude- extreme conditions – water conservation project of ICE STUPA. Currently he is involved in analyzing NASA’s EDR images of Meridiani Planum on Mars.  He is an expert in simulating and analogues of Planetary Geology (specially as an extra-terrestrial trace analyzer). Also, he works for reconstructing fossils via VR/AR. One of his company- Research Hub of Eco Astronomy is a co-supporter of Project Space Hero, an upcoming reality television contest that plans to send a winner to the International Space Station in 2023. He has authored more than 40 International research papers including 10 Books.

As an Astrobiologist Dr Aravinda is researching _ fundamentals of extraterrestrial life and how planetary samples correspond with factors of paleontology and petrology. He has been setting out a harbor life explained by a union of the general theory of Eco Astronomy mechanics & concepts.  Dr. Aravinda Ravibhanu is a Life fellow of the United Nation Organization (SL).
