I am a doctoral candidate at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Tepper School of Business.  My research interests are in the economics of information systems.

Previously, I received a M.S. in System Design and Management from MIT (advisor: Erik Brynjolfsson, thesis: Unified communications: convergence of platforms and strategies of two software vendors, online thesisnew), a M.S. in Computer Science (advisor: Roy Campbell) from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a B.Eng. in Computer Engineering from NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi, Pakistan.
Before returning to academia, I worked in the high-technology industry for approximately 10 years. Most recently, I was a Principal Product Manager at Oracle USA Incorporated. Earlier, I worked at Verizon in product strategy, software development management, and software development.
I live with my wife and sons (عمر احمد حیدرى Omar Ahmad Hydari, صھيب احمد حيدري Sohaib Ahmad Hydari, and Ali Ahmad Hydari ) in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA.
