Teaching & Research Interests: 

Currently my research interest lies in exploring 'language-change' through corpus linguistics; discourse analysis; and statistics. I teach "Mapping LanguageChange', a 400 level course, based on the methodology used in, and the findings of my linguistic research. I am also very interested in exploring the life and works of 18th century prose writers. My graduate course "Global 18th Century" reflects that. Another dimension of my research is to examine literary and critical practices of ancient Sanskrit texts. I want to formulate an undergraduate course on "Shastrarth".
