Vishal is currently working on a research which attempts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and their environmental impact by capturing the natural gases. His research looks at "geologic sequestration" or capturing the carbon dioxide that is released when coal is burnt (or created as a by-product in other industries) and injecting it back into the rock deep underground so that it is not released into the atmosphere.

Vishal explained  that the natural gases have remained trapped in deep underground rock structures for several million years. This provides an analogy to inject and store the greenhouse gases in rocks and prevent their release into the atmosphere.
