Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Chancellor’s Fellow in Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Leadership at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship. I completed my Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode in 2017. This research, which was supported by Strategic Management Society's (SMS) Strategic Research Foundation (SRF) dissertation fellowship, explored the role of institutional context in social entrepreneurship. Before joining Strathclyde, I was a visiting research fellow at the University of Liverpool Management School.

Research Interests

My research interests are on two streams broadly. First, I do cross-country research exploring the role of institutions on entrepreneurship and innovation. Second, I study the role of institutions on innovation and CSR strategies of emerging market firms.

Teaching Interests

I enjoy teaching inclusive business models discussing the role of entrepreneurship in bottom-of-the-pyramid markets. I also like teaching technological innovations which focus on aspects around the economics of innovation and role of external environment on innovations. I teach in the first year class on Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice which is a foundation course on basics of entrepreneurship. I also lead the Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) course which involves cross-disciplinary teams within the university working on commercialization of technologies and developing the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Strathclyde. These projects are aimed at addressing the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
