Rishi loves helping students connect with history and the social sciences. He majored in biology with a minor in sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park. After graduating, Rishi caught the travel bug and taught English as a Second Language in Japan. Upon returning to the United States, he began a career in journalism and reported in various towns in Massachusetts. However, he missed working with students and returned to teaching ESL in the Greater Boston area. Rishi began teaching humanities courses at the Fusion campus in Newton, MA in 2018, and is super excited to join the Fusion Global family.
In his free time, Rishi can be found reading, exercising, connecting with nature, or visiting quaint New England towns with his girlfriend. He also joined a taiko drumming group during his time in Japan, and sometimes he likes to break out his “bachi” and practice his drumming skills.
