I am interested in questions about democratising higher education and knowledge from universities. I examine how the research, teaching and third mission roles of universities can be oriented towards engaging with some of pressing public challenges and achieving social outcomes. I am intersted in systemic, policy and organisational transformations of higher education and universities to be able to achive these goals. 

My work contributes to the disciplines of public policy and administration and higher education. See more details on my research and publications pages. 

I obtained my Doctorate in Education from UCL Institute of Education, University College London. Prior to that, I obtained my MBA from the University of Oxford, MS from the University of California Berkeley, and B.Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. I was a visiting faculty at IIM Ahmedabad, a teaching fellow at UCL, and a faculty at the FLAME University, Pune, India.  Before joining academia, I worked for 15 years with GE, Yahoo!, and the Indian School of Business (ISB).
