What are you working on right now?
Currently, I am engaged in a collaborative research project funded by the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR). I am working with project partners, Dr. Shekhar Tokas from Ambedkar University, India and Dr. Venesser Fernandes from Monash University, Australia to examine the motivations and experiences of international students in India.
What gets you excited about work?
I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunities for international education and work.
