SANATANA DHARMA COLLEGE
Smt. Lalitha R. Pillai (Associate Professor, Department of Statistics)
MSc

I joined SD College in 1985 after completing M.Sc. (Statisitcs) from St. Thomas College Palai. Hailing from a family of academics, teaching is my passion right from early age. I had assisted my father in authoring "The text book of complementary statistics" considered as an eminent piece of work in the field of statistics by an Indian author and is followed by all Universities in Kerala. Presently I am the editor of the book which is recognized as reference by M.G. University.

I had also authored books like "Hand book of engineering statistics, a practical guide to complementary statistics." Co-authored the book " Sasthram ethra lalitham" published by DC Books Kottayam. I had also published a number of articles in dailies and magazines on varying subjects of social importance.

My teaching philosophy is value education. In my 30 years of career I attempted to instill a sense of compassion and morality in my students to become a socially responsible citizen. I believes that learning should become a continuous process beyond classroom. While heading as convener of CSS I had involved my students in the entire process to let them have a taste of practical application of statistics. The sense of inquisitiveness and inspiration ignited to the students is reflected from a number of ISS, research scholars, in prominent universities, statistical officers, among my past students. I had also co-ordinated several co-curicular activities like literary managers, career counselling, soft skill development etc.
