I am a Ph.D. student in the Institute of Urban and Rural Planning Theories and Technologies in Zhejiang University. Hailing from Kerala, India, I have obtained my Bachelor of Architecture (B. Arch.) degree from the National Institute of Technology Calicut (India) and my Master of City Planning (MCP) degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (India).
Before joining Zhejiang University under the Chinese Government Scholarship programme, I have been working as Assistant Professor in Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, India for over five years, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students. I also have experience working briefly as Urban Planner in Chennai, India preparing proposals for district development plans and urban mobility plans.
I have previously researched on areas like regional analysis, transport connectivity and equitable development in India. My current research includes comparative study of Chinese and Indian urbanism with focus on urban processes and policies. I am interested in studies of urbanisation in Asia, effects of urbanisation in developing countries, and the application of big data in urban studies.
I enjoy observing and learning from different cultures, their language and built heritage.
