Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is a very stimulating experience, and I am passionate about it. I believe that teaching is but a process of mutual learning, especially in a research environment where we explore the limits of knowledge. Teaching requires one to state and explain concepts to the learner. This acts as a forcing function for the teacher to have these concepts clear in mind. Teaching requires appropriate abstractions of concepts to enable meaningful learning; the process of forming such abstractions helps the teacher a great deal in understanding those concepts well. And these abstractions ultimately help in better understanding of the body of knowledge and hence facilitate in expanding it through research.
