As a teacher of Public Policy, my aim is to develop an understanding in the students about the concepts, theories and contemporary issues of Public Policy. Towards this end, I intend to employ an interactive method of teaching interspersed with using class lectures, power point presentations, case analysis and class room debates and discussions. Core readings provided will constitute the minimum reading requirement. My field of interest for teaching includes the following courses: Theories of Public Policy, Public Systems Management, Public Administration in India, Urban Environmental Issues and their management, Business, Government and Society, Gender and Governance and Research Methodology.
