Her current research emphasis is on reconstructing ancient marine environments during recent intervals of Earth's history characterised by rapid climate change. Aradhna's non-academic interests are extremely varied, and range from community outreach to athletic and creative personal activities. Some of her recent forays include kickboxing, hiking, salsa dancing, running, enamel, and cooking.
