I joined London South Bank University in 2021, where I am leading modules on Contract Law and International Sale of Goods. I completed my PhD research on International Investment Arbitration on a full scholarship provided by the University of Surrey, UK. Previously, I attained advanced academic qualifications that include two Masters’ degrees: an LL.M degree from the London School of Economics and a Masters in Business Law Degree from National Law School, Bengaluru for which I was awarded the P.K Das Memorial Gold Medal for securing the highest marks. I also held academic positions at three different universities in India.
