SUPERVISION AND MENTORING
I have significant experience in supervising students’ research and also in mentoring clinicians and early career researchers in a few countries. I also mentor and manage employees and contributors to Audiology India, as well as managing and leading the teams and sub-committees of various professional and regulatory bodies. In my past employment at Swansea University, four bachelor’s students’ thesis I supervised were published in international peer-reviewed journals. This set a new trend and standard for undergraduate student projects and was commended highly by the professional and regulatory bodies during the accreditation event at Swansea University.I continue to support various researchers across the world (e.g., UK, Portugal, India, Singapore, Iran). This is done through face-to-face meetings and with the use of Internet. This has resulted in many publications in peer-reviewed journals. This way of mentoring and leading people through internet-based communication is becoming more predominant. This also separates me from other researchers, since I am comfortable working with various researchers at different experience levels, from different cultural background and in different working formats (e.g., internet).
