About Me

I am a PhD student in the Inter-disciplinary Program in Educational Technology, at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
My advisor is Prof. Sahana Murthy.
As a part of my research, I am keen on investigating the thinking skills that are predominantly used in engineering design. I am particularly interested in Divergent and Convergent thinking skills.


Topic of my thesis: A TEL environment for divergent and convergent thinking skills in the context of engineering design
