How long have you been at CSB/SJU?

This is my seventh year.

What classes do you teach and which is your favorite? Why?

Economic Development, Asian Economies, Econometrics, Quantitative Methods and Introduction to Economics.

I love Economic Development, Asian Economies, and Introduction to Economics the most. Economic development and Asian economies are my passions. They have to deal with global and local economic development — the lives of people, especially gender issues and linking economics to the real world.

What do you consider to be the most rewarding aspect of your job?

I get to meet great young minds. I also have the opportunity to read and write, getting to know so much about the world while educating others.

Where are your teaching areas and interests?

Economic Development and the Economics of Gender (Feminist Economics).

What areas of research are most intriguing to you?

Gender issues.

What has been your biggest challenge throughout your years of teaching?

Sticking to my class limit! I get too carried away.

Why did you choose CSB/SJU?

I am from India where I studied in a Catholic environment for school and college. CSB/SJU reminded me of those same aspects during my interviews. I love the liberal arts environment which allows me to pursue interdisciplinary teaching and research.
