I am a faculty at Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar, India and an adjunct faculty at Flinders University, Australia. Courses taught by me can be broadly classified under Ancient Indian Technologies, Ancient Indian Structures and Hydrology and, the Nagas. My specialization is in the areas of Ancient Indian Technologies, Sourcing of Ancient Indian Glass, Ancient Indian Iron, Intellectual Property Rights of Indigenous People, Sustainable Heritage, Repatriation, and Naga Hills in Northeast India. I am a doctorate in Archaeology with three decades of experience in studies of archaeology, ethnography, ethnohistory and museum studies. I have lectured on Indian culture, traditional crafts and indigenous communities in a few of the top universities and institutions across the world including in Bangladesh, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UK and USA. I have authored and edited 14 books, one journal and 80 research papers in peer reviewed journals and as book chapters.
In the process I learnt various facilities required for studying and displaying Indian Culture and Communities. I am well versed with computer analyses and have developed a number of multimedia CDs related to Indian culture. My exposure and training in some of the best Institutes/Laboratories in the world and fieldwork in interiors of Indian sub-continent can best be utilised in an Institute/centre for Indian Cultural Research, teaching and display.
