Faculty Profile

I believe research is integral to the University ecosystem and it must be encouraged at all institutions of higher learning. I also believe that there should be dialogue between one's research output and classroom lectures. It is through such a syncretic knowledge traffic that both institution and nation can prosper. After all, we are a sum total of the books that we have read and the teachers we have learnt from.
