I have grown up in a family where my grandfather and my mother were highly motivated teachers. Thus, somewhere in my mind; the seed of taking up the teaching profession was sown.

After completing my BE, I immediately joined as a lecturer in engineering college in Navi-Mumbai and simultaneously pursued and completed ME Electronics with specialization in Computer Technology.

Ultimately, I could find my destination in 2001, when I joined Vidyalankar Institute of Technology, Mumbai. At VIT, I discovered that teaching is not just an art but also a different technology altogether. Here in VIT, we all are always on our toes doing our teaching sincerely and with full dedication. We are ready to adopt any new technology for self-upliftment and for the benefit of the students. Everything we do here is students centric. At Vidyalankar, I worked as Head of Department for almost 13 years. Apart from administrative work, I took initiative to start with one of the major events in the department namely ‘Greek Olympiad’ under the banner of Information Technology Student Association (ITSA); wherein students can explore their technical abilities and engage with quality projects. As a Convener of the Anti-ragging committee almost for 10 years, I could connect very well with the students and could understand student psychology.

I always try to guide and motivate my students to participate and win prizes in different national level project Competitions in the field of embedded systems, IOT and image processing.

I have the aptitude to remain flexible, ensuring that every student’s learning styles and abilities are addressed to become successful learners. I visualize my role as providing students with a window into the real world that exists outside the classroom and developing skills that they can implement in real life.
