Biography:

Lecturer in the Business school since 2008. My expertise is in the teaching and learning of economics for Pre-degree and first year students in Bachelor of Business.

Research Summary:

The data suggests that India’s rise in economic growth has not brought significant positive returns to women. Women make up half of human capital in India. Neglecting this resource of human capital will significantly reduce economic growth and wealth formation of India.
