Debarshi Roy

Independent Researcher
Self Employed

I am passionate about school education, which has been my area of work as a consultant and a researcher for the past 17 years. Over these years I have studied the intricacies and complexities of human behaviour within the domains of schools. My experiences among children have encouraged me to develop systems to create empathetic, liberal and psychologically safe schools. I dream to help in creating schools where children are free to think, question norms and reach confidently for the sky

Biography

I have a PhD in organizational behaviour and a masters degree in education management. As a researcher my interests lie in quantitative modeling of human behaviour, behavioural game theory and behavioural economics.  I attempt to apply my areas of research interests to my passion for creating empathetic school systems; in the process I have developed psychometric tools to measure psychological safety, empathetic leadership and empathetic culture in Indian schools. My papers on school management have been published by the Indian Institutes of Management (Lucknow and Shillong), Xavier’s Labour Relations Institute (XLRI, Jamshedpur) and Symbiosis Centre for Management and Human Resource Development  (Pune) among others.I dream to contribute effectively to the creation of egalitarian, empathetic and liberal schools where children are free to think, question norms and reach confidently for the sky.
