Biography

I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Supply Chain and Operations department at the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. I am working with Professor Rachna Shah to study operational failures in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. Some examples of operational failures include drug shortages, adverse events, product recalls.

Before joining the Ph.D. program, I worked as a Research Associate at the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (India) with Professor Sarang Deo. I worked on projects that aimed at improving access to health care products and services. In the first project, we studied a large-scale digital health intervention to improve TB care in India. In the second project, we highlighted the unintended consequences of the price control policies in India.

Before entering academia, I worked as a management consultant at EY-Parthenon (Dubai, UAE) and ZS Associates (Pune, India). I also worked in the management trainee program at Ranbaxy Labs. Ltd (Gurgaon, India). I have a Post-Graduate Programme in Management from the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (India) and a Bachelor of Technology from the National Institute of Technology, Warangal (India)

On the personal front, I am a traveler, a hiking/trekking enthusiast, and an open water scuba diver. I am also an avid music lover who is learning Hindustani classical singing.
