I am a fourth year PhD student in Operations Management at IESE Business School. Having always been fascinated by the relationship between the cultural industries and the society, my research interests have naturally gravitated towards this niche area. Specifically, my research agenda is to employ principles from Operations Management towards building robust strategies for effective and sustainable management of cultural industries.

Prior to beginning my PhD journey at IESE, I completed my undergrad studies in Mechanical Engineering from University of Pune and then earned a graduate degree in Industrial Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Professionally, I have worked as a Supply Chain Engineer in Mumbai and then as a consultant for major package carrier companies while at Penn State.
