  • I have been fortunate to receive an opportunity to teach while pursuing research at JIBS. Senior faculty members have guided at all times over innovative teaching style, learning aids, assessment pattern to inculcate active learning. The teaching opportunity has provided a platform to assess the calibre of oneself in a classroom setting and to instil confidence in delivering lectures in front of a large audience. Over the year, various workshops and trainings were provided through the Institute’s moderation committee that guided young teachers in becoming effective and productive academicians.

  • In 2017, as a visiting scholar at the Law School of Jindal Global University, I was privileged to meet Dr. Sanjeev P Sahni, the Principal Director at Jindal Institute of Behavioural Sciences (JIBS), who is now my doctoral supervisor. The good academic atmosphere and diversified research methods offered here became the biggest motivation for me to apply for and become a doctoral research fellow of JIBS. JIBS is like an academic family where each member receives meticulous care and guidance.
