I am a young researcher and I have recently finished (27 November, 2019) my Ph.D. from Department of Human Development and Family Studies, College of Community Science, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. In Ph.D., I worked on issues related to identity development, emotional intelligence and academic achievement of adolescents among urban and rural PUC students of Dharwad and Tanakpur and thereafter, conducted an intervention programme for such students who were in an identity crisis stage. In my Master’s research work, I studied an online social networking pattern of introvert and extrovert adolescents and its effect on their lifestyle and developed a self- structured tool to study the usage pattern, purpose of online social networking and its effect on the lifestyle of adolescents. I have published papers in following journals viz., Advance Research Journal of Social Science, International Journal of Multidisciplinary Research and Development, Multilogic in Science, International Journal of Pure and Applied Biosciences, International Journal of Humanities and Social Science Invention and International Journal of Current Microbiology and Applied Sciences.

Details regarding Educational Qualifications
a. Pursued Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies from University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad (2016-2019). In Ph.D., I had 1-year course work and 2 years research work. Courses which I have studied includes: Advances in Family Studies, Qualitative Research Methods, Dynamics of Group Behaviour, Training and Human Resource Development, Research Methods and Techniques in Human Development and Family Studies, Adulthood Dynamics, Programme Development for Vulnerable Families, Geriartic Nutrition, Disaster Management, Data Analysis Using Statistical Packages, Multivariate Analysis etc. I did my Ph.D. research on “Identity development, emotional intelligence and academic achievement of adolescents: Correlates and intervention”. In my research work, I tried to explore the identity development, emotional intelligence and academic achievement of PUC students and influence of individual (age, gender, class, ordinal position, locality, personality factors and self- concept) and familial factors (family size, family type, parents education, parents occupation and socio-economic status) on it and I also developed an intervention package for identity development of adolescents. Target group included urban and rural PUC- I and PUC-II students in the age group of 16 to 18 years who were studying in different science coaching institutes of Dharwad (Karnataka) and Tanakpur (Uttarakhand). Out of total, 22 %
(4) coaching institutes from Dharwad and 25 % (3) coaching institutes from Tanakpur were randomly selected. A random sample of 10 to 15 per cent were drawn from each class (PUC-I and PUC-II) of Dharwad and Tanakpur science coaching institutes constituting an overall sample of 592 students. A QUAN-qual sequential mixed research method was employed where, quantitative research method included differential and correlational design methods and qualitative method involved case summaries with in-depth interview of selected participants to get a richer understanding of factors influencing identity development of adolescents. Results of the quantitative study highlighted lower identity development of rural PUC students of Dharwad as a result, an intervention package entitled “A guide to identity development among adolescents” was prepared that covered almost all topics that could bring out significant improvement in the identity of students. The identity development guide began with an introduction about concept of identity development and characteristics of individuals having static and dynamic identity supported by various examples of famous personalities (Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Dr. Kiran Bedi etc) and young achievers and Olympiads (Priyanshi Somani, Arvind Chidambaram, Shardul Vihan, Neeraj Chopra etc). It was followed by the types of identity, dimensions and statuses of identity development, factors influencing identity development, identity crisis, causes and effects of identity crisis, identity formation modes and stages of positive identity development, tips to resolve an identity crisis, tips to support healthy identity development and importance of creating positive identity of oneself. An intervention program was conducted for a period of two and half months at one science coaching institute of Dharwad with each session being conducted twice a week for two-hour duration. An intervention brought a significant improvement in the identity development of PUC students. b. Pursued Masters in Human Development and Family Studies from Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology, Udaipur, Rajasthan (2014-2016). My Master’s research topic was : “A study on online social networking among introvert and extrovert adolescents” where, I explored the online social networking pattern of introvert and extrovert adolescent boys and girls, effect of online social networking as experienced by introvert and extrovert adolescent boys and girls on their lifestyle and compared online social networking pattern amongst introvert and extrovert boys and girls, introvert boys and girls, extrovert boys and girls and overall boys and girls. Inventory on online social networking was developed keeping in mind the objectives of research which covered three major aspects viz., usage pattern of online social networking, purpose of online social networking, effect of online social networking on lifestyle. There were overall 33 statements which were to be responded in terms of mostly, sometimes, rarely and never whichever was suitable to the respondents. The pilot testing was conducted on a small sample of 30 adolescents within the age range of 15-18 years to check the reliability and validity of the inventory. The target group for the present study consisted of 120 introvert and extrovert adolescent boys and girls from co-educational private schools of Udaipur city. In the present study, positive effects were comparatively higher than negative effects among majority of adolescents. Clear-cut gender difference was also observed with respect to effect of online social networking on their lifestyle. Further, no significant difference was observed among extrovert and introvert adolescents in terms of pattern of usage and effect of online social networking on their lifestyle. I have also studied courses related to life-span development from childhood to adulthood, family studies and psychology. c. I completed my graduation in Home Science from Pantnagar University.
