After obtaining  MBA in Human resource Management in  2010 from  AESPGIBM, Gujarat university . Joined  Organizational behavior  Area, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA),(2010- 2015).  Presently  faculty at  AmSom in  Management  area. Developed skills to analyze and carry out 360 feedbacks, CPI analysis and CVF framework, besides designing and teaching course on Human resource Management, Industrial relations and Designing effective organizations  for  MBA students at Amrut Mody School of Management and  Amrita Business school. Presented my research work on platforms like UNESCO- APEID, PAN IIM Conferences .Besides that  wrote papers for journals,cases  and  working papers at IIM A.Won  best young case writer award by ET  cases at FLAME conference.



My teaching philosophy rests on  encouragement of providing concrete  information which   stands true with reference to current scenarios of business. Particular emphasis is on the promotion of analyzing situations based on frameworks which theory provides, and accordingly develop their own out of box solutions . Learning is done by exploring and not by limiting or restricting your options



Business and  Management education  domain  are  constantly changing and it also means constant  analysis and understanding  of its true context.  For me research is  to explore those  ideas which might be very minute but  gets unnoticed and can bring changes if carried forward properly. It also get affected  by minds you are working along with.
