Research Interest

  • Apart from having a keen interest in academics, I am also passionate about research as an important tool of critical thinking and assessment, to understand issues and increase public awareness about the same.
  • I have conducted several research studies of which 25 papers have been published in National and International Journals and books with UGC recognition.
  • Furthermore, I have also completed a 9 - Month Research Methodology course from University of Mumbai and under the same, I have submitted a Minor Research Project on “Job Satisfaction and Work Life Balance.”
  • A comparative study was undertaken by me on “The Effect of Emotional Security & Addiction of Irrational Belief.”
  • I take pride in sharing my knowledge and skills relating to research and have been providing guidance to students on various research projects in Industrial and Counselling Psychology since 1999.
  • My most recent project was conducting an extensive global survey on “Effects of coping mechanisms on Loneliness and Wellbeing of people during the Covid-19 Pandemic.”
