I believe that management education is a judicious blend of Cognitive knowledge and experiential learning. I emphasize upon critically diagnosing a problem using conceptual understanding and developing simplest possible solution through reflection of experiential learning. In order to create experiential learning environment, I expose my students to varied scenarios through case studies, group projects, and simulation games.

I expect my students to spend their time during any course as a transformational process rather than just earning grades or a degree.I strongly believe that participative discussion using varied scenarios leads to transformation in thought and creates visual image of seemingly complex concepts. With this my students can easily take challenges and defend them.

My under-graduation in Mechanical engineering helps me inculcate analytical problem solving approach with entrepreneurial mind-set to my students.Being a post-graduate in Business Administration and substantial industrial experience at various managerial positions, I can easily correlate the importance of conceptual understanding and its managerial implications in real life cases.

Currently my teaching interests are Operations Management; Project Management and other quantitative subjects. I am also Coordinating Centre for Business Analytics and Operational Excellence which is focussed on academic research as well as imparting training to industry professionals.

My research intent focuses upon exploring the opportunities for developing lean environment and exploring how tools of operations management can be applied to major business sectors such as—the health care industry and automotive Industry to assess and improve their productivity.
