After obtaining MBA in Human resource Management in 2010 from AESPGIBM, Gujarat university . Joined as an academic associate in 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.
