I am an Associate Professor of Business Administration at the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh.

Previously I was... 
* assistant professor of information systems at the Singapore Management University
* PhD student and research associate at the University of Michigan
* product manager & senior developer at SAP AG, Walldorf, Germany and SAP Labs India, Bangalore
* software engineer at CGI (IMR), Bangalore

Broadly speaking, I am interested in software process and product design, software-driven innovation, and technology management issues. Two interrelated goals guide my research: 
  1. help businesses involved in the development and maintenance of software systems to produce high quality products, solutions, and services in an efficient and cost-effective way.  
  2. help firms to improve the efficacy of their digital business strategies which rely on enterprise software platforms.  

I investigate system design and development activity by focusing on team-level processes and their interrelationships with the technical design attributes of artifacts produced by the team. In doing so, I develop process and product design guidelines for product development teams, and help practitioners manage complex tradeoffs in product, service, and organization design.

My key research themes are:
  • Software process and product design with a focus on globally distributed product development and services delivery 
  • Design, implementation, and governance of enterprise information systems
  • Software-driven innovation and business strategies
  • Technology-facilitated social change in the "base of the income pyramid" communities
