Biography

My research interests lie in the areas of open source software development and online communities. I am particularly interested in understanding how we can replicate the unique value creation mechanisms that operate in open source software communities across IT and non-IT firms. Some of the research topics that I am currently pursuing include open source work structures, open source licensing, and network governance.

My teaching interests and experience lie in the areas of data science and business analytics. I like to make my courses hands-on by incorporating programming tools like Python and online resources like Codeacademy. I am also proficient in econometric concepts and open source software development perspectives (technical, social, and economic perspectives). I enjoy learning new subjects/trends and developing practice oriented courses around them.
