Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr Anup Karath Nair is currently Lecturer in Engineering Management at the Department of Design Manufacturing and Engineering Management (DMEM), University of Strathclyde. His current research investigates the emergence of business model innovations in 3D printing or additive manufacturing industries.

Born in Bangalore, India in 1985, Anup was educated in India, United Kingdom and Germany, where he studied as an Erasmus Mundus scholar. Anup obtained his PhD in Strategy and Organisation from the Strathclyde Business School in November 2015. He also holds a B-Tech in Electrical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Durgapur, India and an European Joint MSc in Global Innovation Management from the University of Strathclyde and the Technical University of Hamburg Harburg (TUHH). He has also enjoyed corporate stints with IBM and SAP before returning back to academia to pursue his post-graduate and doctoral studies.

The overarching theme within Anup’s research has been to develop a deeper conceptual, theoretical, methodological, empirical and practical understanding of technology driven innovations within organisations, particularly high value manufacturing organisations. This is the primary reason for his continued interest in process philosophy, technology strategy and process research methods as these allow him to investigate and generate the crucial ‘know how’ knowledge sought by business practitioners. Anup’s doctoral dissertation is titled “Organising while Innovating: Towards a Process Theory in Innovation Management” and the thesis introduces a new, process philosophy inspired innovation theory by investigating two new product development projects in real time at a Scottish high value manufacturing firm. The thesis extensively draws from the rich literature on innovation management, strategy and change management, organisational theory and process research methods. It reflects Anup’s commitment to blend a creative research vision with scholarly rigorous yet industry relevant and practically useful research.

His research expertise, teaching and industrial consulting interests include, the implementation challenges of innovation, Business Models in High Value Manufacturing, Technology Strategy Management and Servitization, Innovation in New Technology Ventures, User Innovation, Open Innovation and Internal Corporate Venturing Process, Design Philosophy and Management, Strategic Change Management, Science and Technology Studies, Process philosophy and Organisation Theory and Process research methods to unearth organisational dynamics. Anup welcomes PhD students who – like him – are interested in investigating the 'how' questions within these broad areas.
