3. Can you tell us about your areas of expertise and what led you to this profession?


My area of expertise includes Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management. Honestly, what drove me to this profession is the freedom to follow my nose where I can teach and create novel concepts, knowledge, and competencies. Also, I can extend my expertise through community outreach activities without wearing me out. Personally, I did want it for the psychic reward that indeed I was able to extend some of my scientifically acquired thoughts and insights for the growth of our students.


4. What was your proudest and most memorable moment as a professor?


It has been more than 15 years of teaching and research, till date, I have mentored more than 1000 students. Every year on teacher’s day I receive wishes and compliments from my present and former students. On last teacher’s day I saw the WhatsApp status of one of my students who is a faculty of HRM in a reputed college, she acknowledged that she copies my teaching style. Moreover, she admitted that she has developed teaching instincts because of me. Nothing, else can make a teacher more proud than these words of revelation of the fact that they have influenced their students’ life so profoundly.


5. Can you tell us about your achievements?


My biggest achievement is that I am doing what I always wanted to do. I had       been striving for a career which gave me opportunity to keep learning new things    and influence lives of people I come across.


6. Can you tell us about some of your major research publications and a glimpse of your project?


I believe in interdisciplinary research for the societal advancement that provides an opportunity for: a) exploring and collaborating multiple disciplines with discovering multiple perspectives and b) developing fundamental skills that are essential to facing real-world challenges in multicultural settings. I used to celebrate the diversity and creativity by showcasing and disseminating the interdisciplinary research outcomes. My research publications and books can be accessed from following links-

7. How do you manage your work-life balance?


I believe that there is no finer calling in the world than that of a professor as they are intensely self-motivated. I have been able to maintain a healthy work-life equilibrium with the belief that “our work is our life”. I make as many shortcuts around works at home as I can, with the help of technology. I think efficiency, rather than show-home. To boot, my family share chores equally. My maternal and in laws’ families are nearby that makes caring for my two growing daughters and dealing with the chaos in need as another pair of hands.
