My interest area is developing design solutions to the studio problems and guiding the students to achieving them through concepts and logical design processes. This would also involve preparation of a design programme for a give design project.

I am also a research scholar in the doctoral programme at SPA Bhopal. My intended areas of research are related to field of urban design in general. This involves studying cities with specific focus on built and un built in a city. Here public spaces which are the nerve centre of a social and community living need to be understood as a living space through various dimensions.
