I am a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Supply Chain and Operations department at the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. I am interested in studying how operational decisions affect the development and distribution of pharmaceutical drugs. My questions explore themes such as supply chain transparency, innovation, new product development, and shortages. I use a mix of empirical and experimental research methodologies and theory-driven frameworks to answer my research questions.

  • Under the drug development stream, I explore 
    • How expedited new product development leads to issues in drug quality?
    • How transparency in new product development impacts drug innovation? 
  • Under the drug distribution stream, I examine 
    • How transparency in the supply chain impacts shortages?
    • How does quality failure spill over?
    • How inventory transparency affects panic buying?

Before joining the Ph.D. program, I worked as a Research Associate at the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (India) with Professor Sarang Deo. 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.
