Research Interests

My research focuses on fields of Organizational Behaviour and Leadership, specifically topics of work-life balance, social networks, and racialized employees. My current research focuses on understanding the work-life experiences of professionally employed racialized women, with a present focus on South Asian women.

I have over a decade of academic and industrial work experience. A steadfast advocate of lifelong learning, my primary career goal is to be an effective educator – to teach future professionals to ask questions, find solutions and be kind and compassionate individuals that not only thrive in the workforce but make it a better place to be! I am interested in examining the effect of instructor kindness and care in relation to overall course learning and satisfaction. 

Teaching Interests

I am cross appointed to the Psychology Department and the Arts and Business Program (ARBUS). I currently teach Practical Business Skills (ARBUS 300) for the Arts and Business program. My overall teaching experience covers a variety of Organizational Behaviour and Business courses including Human Resource Management, Foundations of Leadership, International Business, Business Communications, Business Report Writing and Personal Computer Systems in Business.

In Winter 2023 I will be teaching Strategy and Program Integration (ARBUS 400), the capstone course in the Arts and Business Program.
