I have 16 years of post-qualification experience in the diverse areas of Corporate and Global Banking with MNC banks; Corporate & Banking Finance with a leading Indian company; and Management Teaching.

I have had the distinction of working in different cities in India handling a portfolio of both local and global corporates, primarily multinational companies. In 2011, I joined a management institute at the post of an Assistant Professor.

I have a mix of corporate and academic experience and to remain in academia, it was essential that I pursue a PhD.

To bridge the gap between my last taught degree (Masters in Business Economics from the University of Indore) and an ensuing PhD, I decided to pursue an MRes in Management (Masters in Research) to familiarise myself with current research methods.

After completing my MRes from The York Management School (TYMS) at the University of York, I decided to remain here to read for a PhD in Management. I received the Scholarship for Overseas Students and the Overseas Continuation Scholarship.

While reading for my PhD, I have recently attained a teaching qualification as well, that of an Associate Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy (AFHEA).

My other academic credentials include a B.A (Honours) in Economics from Delhi University, India and a Certificate in International Business from Indian Institute of Management, Kolkata, India.


At TYMS, I assist in teaching Critical Reading, Management & the Business Environment, Employability, Quantitative Methods and Data Analysis, International Business Environment and Case Studies in Strategic Management. I have taken both seminar and lecture sessions for under graduate and post graduate students.

I have also had a pastoral role at the University as a College Tutor with Goodricke College (2013-14 & 2015-16).

In India, I used to teach Managerial Economics, Financial Markets & Institutions, Banking and Corporate Governance & Business Ethics at the post graduate level.
