After having broad exposure to the field of international law, he chose to dwell into a subject where there is a blend of law, sciences and application of technology for the betterment of the society. Hence, he chose Air and Space law as the field of law for to research and work upon as a part of his research while pursuing his M. Phil and thereafter Ph.D. at Jawaharlal Nehru University (J.N.U.)., New Delhi.
He chose the field of Air and Space Law not only for his passion for aircrafts and other objects in flight, but also because this area is an emerging area and does not have many academicians or research scholars, who could contribute to the development of this field, which was and is even growing at a rapid pace. Subsequently, he also co-edited two books with his teachers, which is again a unique achievement in JNU.
