I continue to strive to create an intellectually challenging, tolerant and relevant learning environment.

I strongly believe that, as educators, our roles as teachers and researchers are closely intertwined. Hence, an effective research program informs and invigorates the classroom experience. My teaching philosophy in general emphasizes relevance and critical thinking. I often customize my teaching approaches and techniques to the specific learning context. My teaching philosophy is strongly embedded on research-infused teaching. I believe that effective teachers not only convey new knowledge to their students but also help them discover their independent intellectual voice through critical thinking.
