Doctoral Student, Engineering Education
I am curious about how engineering is taught, studied and practiced. My research interests include higher education capacity building, educational policy, and service learning.
I am currently working on the FREEFORM project that implements an Active, Blended and Collaborative (ABC) environment inside a dynamics classroom at Purdue University. We are researching the role an ABC environment plays in the students engagement and performance in the course. I am also interested in the role of service learning and entrepreneurship on an engineering student’s professional development. My long term goal is to work in educational policy and drive higher education capacity building in India.
