Teaching Philosophy: “I consider teaching as an essential part of my career and enjoy the experience of being in a classroom. Teaching is not a one-way traffic. The constant interaction among the students and me inspires great ideas to apply in marketing. Technology has evolved to allow more interaction in the classrooms. While working at Samsung, I have able to teach classes to new employees and used an interaction application from mobile devices. I plan to use the same experience here at Purdue.”
