I joined Boston University, Questrom School of Business in 2011. Before that I was a visiting assistant professor in the Tepper School of Business. I did my PhD in Information Systems from the Heinz College, Carnegie Mellon University. At CMU I also completed MS in Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining from the Machine Learning Department.
Prior to starting my PhD I did a B.Tech. in Industrial Engineering from Indian Institute of Technologies, Kharagpur. Then I worked as a software engineer at i2 Technologies, now JDA Software Group, in Bangalore, India.
I grew up in the state of Odisha, India, with a large part of my school years spent in the Dhenkanal district.
