Dr. Kundalkar teaches the General Chemistry labs I and II. She also is an Honors College Academic Advisor. Honors College Students can sign up for Internship, Research and Thesis in Chemistry with her.
Her teaching philosophy is to bring to her courses an instructional method which will expose students to new ideas and experimental situations. It will encourage them to be analytical listeners and develop a capacity for independent learning. This will then evolve into student-generated projects that they can use for their senior thesis.
Dr. Kundalkar's research interests are in water and waste water treatment and analyses, development of polymers for latex paints, catalysts for oxidative dehydrogenation, and reactions of metal complexes.
She has served on the Symposium Committee, the Admissions Committee and currently she is serving on the Northern Campus Awards Achievement Committee.
