Career and Projects

"I have a passion for Teaching and Learning. I believe educators are shaping the future by training people who will become the next leaders. Therefore, I am aiming to see where I can add value in such a way that the students will reap the benefits - be it in the way the faculty teach, or the way they deliver and facilitate learning online.

One of my strong points is to listen and analyse whether the problem is the faculty, or their students’ experience and to make suggestions on how to tackle these challenges."
