I have completed my school education from Marathi medium school located in Mumbai. My school days were a route to shape my career and inculcated moral in me. After completing my school education from a vernacular medium I got admission in one of reputed college in Mumbai in discipline of Commerce. I had always been a diligent student and a topper in my college. I was even awarded BMS Academic Excellence Award by Indian Business School for remarkable performance at University level examination. I enjoy reading and developed this habit during my college days to improve my command over communication and that is how I fell in love with reading. I have a passion for learning new skills related to technical and teaching methodologies. In fact, my suggestion to all students is to never go into a comfort zone where your learning stops, rather come out of the comfort zone and explore new things.

I am BMS graduate, a dual postgraduate degree holder in management studies (specialization in finance) and in commerce (specialization in Management), Qualified NET examination twice in the subject of Commerce & Management and SET examination in the subject of Management. Currently I am pursuing Ph.D. in the subject of commerce.

I am in Management department of VSIT working as an Assistant Professor, additionally Second Year In-charge of BMS Department, Convener to Final Year Project Quality Assurance Committee, Convener to Digital Content Committee and an active member of admission committee of VSIT.

I have published research papers in SCOPUS Indexed journals & UGC care list journals. I have presented research papers at National & International Level conferences across India. I am a recipient of Best Research Paper award in the international conference organized by VSIT in Mumbai. My latest research is in the area of Human Resource Management, Work Engagement and Employee Engagement.

I have invited many eminent personalities to deliver talk on various issues. To name a few, Mr. Andreas Bauer, an Assistant Director in International Monetary Fund (IMF) delivered talk on “IMF view of India and Its Economy”, Dr. Sangeeta Pawar, Professor in University of Mumbai delivered a talk on “Research Methodology in Commerce & Management” and many more. I believe Industrial visit is one of the techniques to bridge the gap between Industry & Academic and thus I have organized Industrial Visits to World Trade Centre (WTC-Mumbai), Headquarter of Reserve Bank of India in Mumbai and many more.

Apart from my academic engagement, I ensure my physical wellbeing by engaging in physical activites like swimming and going to the gym.
