My research interests focus on Sustainable Operations Management and Marketplace Design & Analytics. I use large-scale datasets, randomized controlled trials, and experiments to test my hypotheses.
In the sustainable operations stream, I study how principles of Operations Management can be leveraged to impact significant global challenges such as food-waste and healthcare provision, as highlighted in the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 adopted by the United Nations.
In the marketplace design stream, I study unintended consequences for traditional businesses that arise from the adoption of new technologies and business models. In my job market paper (co-authored with Michael Freeman and Sameer Hasija), I leverage traditional econometric techniques and machine learning to measure the impact of third-party food-delivery platforms on the operational performance of traditional restaurants.
I have pedagogical experience at various levels (MBA, Exec-Ed, and Ph.D.). This experience includes teaching and tutoring, as well as course development, e.g., for the Data Science for Business elective for MBA students at INSEAD. I am especially enthusiastic about teaching courses on programming and analytics.
