Research Areas:

Primary focus of my thesis related research is on understanding the firm environmental developments, discontinuities and uncertainties while documenting strategic responses by the start-up firms, exhibiting micro-foundations of dynamic capabilities. The area extends to the role of leaders and leadership through learning and unlearning processes in creating new paradigms. The emerging country developments promise considerable potential for research materials in this domain.
 
The recent engagements with Government of India projects and institutional linkages inspire application-based research exploring Innovation in Constrained Environment. The idea includes identifying and facilitating inclusive Grass-root Innovation and Appropriate Technology development towards Co-creating potential networking for sustainable development. The Techno-Entrepreneurial- Leadership Lab engages with student, faculty, and start-up entrepreneurs in facilitating their journey and bringing lessons to academics through classroom discussions and research articles.
 
The research in Innovation and Entrepreneurship includes examining the domain of Innovation Ecosystem in an Emerging country context. Present research initiatives focus on identifying, conceptualizing and modelling Technology Entrepreneurship. The engagement expects larger involvements in the domain where government and non-government initiatives explore opportunities for Digital transformation identifies new roles of innovation in supporting the nation's objectives.

Finally the issue of 'Sustainability' leads the theme of research. Although the construct encompasses a vast field of research, the  challenges faced by the Micro-Small and Medium Enterprises to respond to this environmental demand with the constrained resource situation will be the thread to follow. The advancement of technology especially Industry 4.0 may facilitate the transition of sustainable development led by the small business houses may be special interest of investigation.
