Welcome

Welcome to this website! You will find details of some cool research projects, teaching resources, news articles, and fun stuff on this site. These materials are a by-product of my lifelong learning and journey that started from a tiny village in India where (unfortunately) people still do not have access to proper electricity, education, and in some cases three times meal, clothes, and shelter. My years of experience of tutoring and coaching hundreds of kids, including those who have access to the best possible resources and those with no access to basic amenities, helps me create a collaborative environment of learning for students belonging to different class, cultures, preferences, and experiences together via proper education, training, mentorship, and mutual respect. My training at some of the world-class and socially aware campuses have prepared me to be a good faculty member who cares about students, conduct top quality research, and make academia accessible and welcoming place for people of all identities.

I believe in Dr. Ambedkar's thought which is "Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence." To achieve this goal, we need to recognize an elementary fact that each of us is incredibly capable and if we create opportunities and an atmosphere in which everyone contributes their best, we can make unbelievable progress in all dimensions.
