I am an academician by training trying to understand and, if possible, manage social and human life, simultaneously acknowledging that human society is too complex and different from the natural world that it is neither technically feasible nor ethically desirable to have a planned human world. I practice theoretically oriented empirical research and empirically guided theoretical work.


Presently working on two Monographs
