My work adds value to the client through the breadth and depth of my knowledge and experience.
My expertise encompasses multiple disciplines including Engineering (Computer Science), General Management Principles, Economic Analysis, Quantitative Analysis, Operations Research, Technology Management, and Finance.
In recognition of my MS Excel skills and my willingness and ability to share my knowledge with others, Microsoft has given me the annual Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for 9 years (2000-present).
Academically, I have a doctorate (Ph.D.) in Operations Management from the University of Rochester Simon School of Business. In my dissertation I extended existing financial models of new technology investments (Net Preset Value or NPV and Options Pricing) to incorporate the assessment of risk in an imperfect market.
The Ph.D. followed my Master's Degree in Management (MPPM) from the Yale University School of Organization and Management.
While my Bachelor's degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, nominally was in Electrical Engineering, my electives and my thesis focused on Computer Science. The thesis, titled "Programming Style: Concepts and Examples" demonstrates my long standing commitment to easy-to-maintain, error-free, efficient software.
Pre-Masters, my work was largely related to software development, developing cutting edge software solutions on three continents. The focus was on doing what others claimed could not be done. Working closely with clients, the result has been a consistent success story of software solutions that helped reduce internal costs, expedite processing, and successfully leverage market opportunities.
Post-doctorate, I have continued and expanded on my software consulting. I now bring a wealth of knowledge not only in technology, but also in operations, economics, organizational architecture, marketing, and finance.
My expertise and skills reflect a range of capability. This means I can offer
strategic operations consulting,
