Pro Vice Chancellor

Overview

I am interested in student-centric methods of teaching, and introducing more of learning by doing - so projects and labs are an important part of our curriculum. As Pro Vice Chancellor, I am also responsible for faculty development, job readiness of our students, mentoring, and nurturing our examination system.

My technical expertise is in UNIX kernel, and I have worked in this in the first ten years of my career at Wipro's R&D. I have been part of the dream team that designed Landmark, India's best-selling systems in the 1980s. I am among the ten co-founders of Mindtree where I initiated our Knowledge Management, Culture and Competence and Leadership Development initiatives. I have experimented with diverse methods of learning and that passion has now drawn me full-time into education. Teaching Leadership, Systematic Innovation, Appreciation of Conflicts and Ethics, have been some of my favourite courses in the industry.

I love philosophy, making sense of out of diverse signals, systems thinking and believe in inclusion, value of diversity, and that everyone has potential and purpose.
