Teaching Philosophy:

My objective as an instructor is to educate confident, independent and accountable engineers who can think abstractly about real world problems and industrial challenges, analyze them critically, propose effective solutions and articulate them clearly. To me, teaching is an interactive experience that should effectively engage both students and the instructor and lead by getting constant feedback through questions, discussions and assignments.
