Research Interests

My research interests span operations management, corporate finance, and the interface of the two. My pure OM papers study different aspects of operational flexibility. My finance and “interface” research focuses on operational as well as strategic implications of various forms of financing (equity, debt, trade credit, crypto currencies).
