Teaching and Research Interests

I am interested in learning, depreciation of learning, and better raw materials sourcing in supply chains of profit and non-profit sectors; emerging issues such as sustainable production and corruption in supply chains are also of interest to me. My research methodologies comprise econometric analysis of primary data, simulation, and game theoretic modeling.
