Greetings and welcome to my web-page. I hope you find all the
information you are looking for here. Please feel free to
contact me if you have any additional questions, thoughts or
I am an Assistant Professor at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.
My research interests are on the intersection of economics, marketing, and information systems with a focus on digital, social and mobile platforms.
I am excited and blessed to follow my true passion - research and innovation - and hope to make some difference in the world.
In this pursuit of happyness I admire the support from my parents, lovely wife Ankita, my cute
little daughter Sara
, son Shiv, and baby Savi.
Interested in research?
Both Heinz @CMU and McCombs @UT are highly reputed in each of
their diversified research areas (including information systems
management and innovation) and houses the some of the most
amazing and wonderful faculty. If you are interested in research or planning to apply to a
graduate program, I would seriously recommend diving deeper and fascinating yourself.
Not too long ago, my doctors at USC (
Dr Dennis Maceri
Dr David Ko
) diagnosed me with an uncurable hearing loss making
it harder for me to understand the words whispered to me. I
was told that the cause of the loss was weakening of auditory
nerve, which is also called Mild
Sensorineural Hearing Loss
So, my apologies if you asked a question verbally and I asked to repeat it;
please either speak up or write it out.
If you are interested in learning more about me, please feel
free to browse other pages. I have occasionally
tried to have my brain-dump on my blog but I am so irregular
that on an average I have had 1 post per year. My new year
resolution (every year) is to write something every month.
(hoping that year will come soon)
