I joined Saint Joseph’s University in 2017 as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Previously, I was a faculty member, department chair, and Associate Dean at Grand Valley State University, and an ACE Fellow at San Francisco State University. I obtained an MS in Biology at the University of South Carolina and an interdisciplinary doctoral degree from The Ohio State University. I am happy to be back at a Jesuit institution as my undergraduate degree is from St. Xavier’s College, in Mumbai, India. I am trained as a scientist, and I also I enjoy travel, learning languages, and writing short stories. I am looking forward to a deep learning about Ignatian values and connecting with colleagues through this program.
