Students have the unique opportunity to live and learn alongside our dedicated Marshall faculty-in-residence (FIRs). The faculty-in-residence are professors who are especially good at connecting with undergraduate students. Every year, the residence hall students develop strong relationships with them. The FIRs host educational programs for students, offer office hours within the residence halls, and you can often find them eating in Towers Dining Hall!

As the Faculty-in-Residence for Commons, I take this opportunity to welcome you to your new home for the coming academic year. Born and brought up in India, I completed my Bachelors in Biology and Chemistry and 2 Masters Degrees; one in Social Work and the other in Human Resources Management at top rated Universities in India. I moved to USA to complete my PhD in Global/Public Health from Tulane University in New Orleans. My work in the area of Global Health has provided me an opportunity to travel to all continents of planet earth except the Artic and Antarctica, and I look forward to visiting those some time in my lifetime. At Marshall University, I am working as an Assistant Professor and Director for the Under-Graduate Public Health program. For the academic year 2013-2014, I will be living in Willis hall where my faculty-in-residence office is also located. I enjoy outdoors activities, going to the Rec center, watching NFL, planning study abroad programs, and interacting with students from different disciplines. Feel free to stop by my office to discuss academics issues, planning your professional career, watch movies and football or for just a causal chat.
