Here's who I am & what I do
I integrate creativity, emotions, relationships and inclusion into my research, my teaching and my leadership.
As a researcher, I am deeply focused on understanding how complex emotions and relationships can enable leaders to create more inclusive environments.
As a teacher, I seek to create a classroom community characterized by creativity, connection and belonging. By creating a culture of love, I hope that students can step out of their comfort zone to learn through experiences and conversation. In 2020 I created the Belonging Fund to assist students.

As a leader of a program, I am a relational disruptor who aims to operate with flexibility, compassion and intentionality. In 2023, I will represent UNC as one of 5 experienced leaders at the ACC-Academic Leadership Network .
Before coming to UNC, I received my PhD and master’s degree in organizational behavior from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree in industrial and labor relations from Cornell University and a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Mumbai.
