Desautels Faculty of Management

McGill University

I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management at the Desautels Faculty of Management, McGill University. I obtained my PhD in Management Science from the Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia. Previously, I completed my B.S. and M.S. in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

My main research interests are in environmental and socially sustainable operations management. I am also interested in the role of information, incentives, and fairness in multi-agent environments.

Since 2016, I co-organize a year long data science and machine learning workshop for graduate and advanced undergraduate students from the Greater Vancouver region with capstone projects from industry partners. Check us out at

I am also fortunate to be associated with White Box Analytics based in Vancouver and have handled data analytics projects for leading Canadian businesses such as Best Buy Canada, Lululemon, Procurify. In other engagements, my interests in sustainable urban transport planning have led me to serve on the Transportation Advisory Committee to the City of Vancouver during 2019 and 2020.
