I am working with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) as Assistant Professor since 2013 where I develop and conduct courses for the MA and MPhil in Education programs and supervise and guide M.Phil., MA and BA dissertations. I also conceptualize and organise workshops on Disability, Education and Policy. My research interests include Equity, Social Justice, Inclusive Education and Socio-emotional Development and Well-being in schools. I pursue these interests by engaging in teaching, curriculum development and organizing workshops for students, teachers and teacher educators. I have undertaken studies that involved content analysis of textbooks and explored the role of policy and philosophical underpinnings that management upholds as factors motivating the adoption of inclusive practices in their schools. My MPhil. and doctoral research in the field of education has involved engaging with educational experiences, disciplinary practices and emotional well-being in inclusive primary schools. Before moving to higher education and research, I have worked as a teacher and junior head mistress at the primary school level where I was involved with training and guiding teachers in developing effective Individualised Educational Plans and pedagogies, organizing awareness activities for students and conducting workshops for parents to enable schools to develop a whole school approach to inclusive education.
