Professor, consultant and researcher of business strategy and entrepreneurship with 10+ years of consulting experience with clients ranging from Fortune 100 defense companies to Indian retailers, manufacturers and technology startups in three continents. More recently, I have taken on advisory roles at technology startups in Los Angeles and Boston.
I have an MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California and a Ph.D. in Strategic Management from the University of Massachusetts. My research focus is on the association between capital structure (debt and equity) and technology innovation and acquisition (M & A).
As an Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship at North Central College, I primarily teach and develop curriculum for undergraduate and graduate courses in Entrepreneurship. I am also the faculty coordinator at the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. In this role I coordinate various projects and practicums that members of North Central’ business accelerator ConVergeTM bring to the center.
