Bio/Research

I am an Indian (from India) and was a professor of Zoology in Bangalore, India, before I took my doctorate in Systematic Theology from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.

I am trained to be a zoology teacher and theologian but my journey has taken me to places that I had not planned to go, and to vocations that I had not envisioned engaging in. But to the places I go, I try to represent the place that is in me. And to the vocations I find myself called to, I try to invocate the passion that is in me, and convoke the resources that are available to me.

-MSc (Zoology), Gandhiji University, India, 1985.
-MA, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, 2003.
-PhD, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, 2009.

My dissertation, “Can Humanization be Salvation: A Journey with the Musings of Juan Luis Segundo, Madathiparambil Mammen Thomas and Arundhati Roy,” is a dialogue between peoples and communities from different contexts on the basic question of what it means to be human.
