Ajinkya has an MA in Philosophy from the Manipal Centre for Humanities, and another MA in Development Studies from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. His interests lie in analytic and political philosophy, and social sciences in general.


Ajinkya leads a team of Research Associates at the CLIL@India project, working to pilot a bilingual model of education in Indian schools. This is the first time that Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is being formally implemented and empirically studied in India. Ajinkya hopes that the project generates a body of evidence upon which further research can be built.
