Q. Tell us more about your journey as Professor into the field of education & research.

LSE is one of the foremost social science universities in the world and boasts of a phenomenal research culture on the campus. Having received my Ph.D. in 2010 from LSE, later I joined the institute as a Lecturer in the same year. Although the first day as a teacher I was little nervous but eventually I started loving the profession. LSE being an extensively research-driven institute, my research experience was a fruitful one. In the entire research process, you are supposed to answer questions which no one has been able to answer or were never bothered to answer before; hence, altogether these factors makes research an intriguing thing. If anyone aspires to enter into academics career, Ph.D. is a must for them as it provides one the capability to teach effectively and remain as a lifelong learner.

The competitive market of 21st century definitely demands a global degree


Q. What kind of changes did you witness in the education sector since you started your career?

Change is a constant element. With changing teaching methodologies over the years, I have incorporated varied changes in my teaching. At LSE now, I use a lot of examples and real-life situations to teach the students and also bring the optimum practical application of the theoretical part as that commendably help learners to comprehend concepts in a better manner. Keeping research at the helm, LSE always embraces the changing and current trends in the education arena.
