"I have been teaching at St. Teresa's since 2015, primarily engaging the common course classes. Inspiring the love for English language and literature in students who come from eclectic academic background with diverse interests, and encouraging them to read between the lines and dream beyond the texts have been a truly rewarding experience. My scholarly pursuits are devoted to the enquiry of how the novel as a literary genre evolved not only in the English speaking world but also in the indegeneous literary scene (particularly in Malayalam) with a focus on its correlation with colonial modernity. Nineteenth century Literature and its derivatives are hence of particular interest to me."
