Researcher and Teacher in Manipal, India
I am currently a professor in HR and Chair of the new PGDM (HR) program, at the TA PAI MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE in Manipal, Karnataka. I was with IIM Udaipur till recent times, teaching in their MBA and PhD programs.
I took a break from corporate life in Wipro, to complete my Fellowship (doctoral) program at IIM bangalore, in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources. My career since then has been that of an avid researcher and teacher.
My major focus continues to be to teach MBA/PhD students, extend my research interests in the areas of social psychology (social identity) and organizational learning/KM. I have had some successful research publications so far. I have done pro bono consulting for some leading Indian companies in the recent past, and plan to get into more consulting activities.
I bring in a blend of 13 years of corporate experience and the sharpness of a researcher's mind to the table. My research focuses on highly practice-impact areas such as newcomers - socialization, exclusion, identity-based leadership, bench in IT industry.
I have a rich corporate background that covers various areas from customer relationship, software programming, software project management, business development activities, knowledge management for the organisation and Knowledge Management consulting for clients.
I am a member of:

- Academy of Management
- Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology
