My research focuses on the ‘joy of learning’. I am interested in contrasting the experiences of students across different learning contexts including in Montessori, Reggio Emelia, Waldorf classrooms and also non-formal learning contexts.
I completed my undergraduate in mathematics, statistics, and economics and my master’s degree in human resources management from India. I was working with leading corporate organizations before switching to the development sector. I have over 8 years of experience in the education sector- as an elementary teacher, curriculum maker, professional development facilitator, and founder of an educational not-for-profit. At MSU, I am involved with Connected Mathematics Project as a research assistant and also teaches the elementary math methods courses to pre-service teachers.

Through my project with the HUB Fellowship, I aim to develop my competence in design thinking and use it to improve my teaching and research and possibly creating an online instructional platform.
