Research Interests

 My research analyzes firms’ optimal marketing strategies relating to pricing, promotion, product design and channel management under various market conditions; examines how they are impacted by consumer characteristics, competition, and other interactions among stakeholders; and studies their implications for consumer and social welfare. The tools I use in my research are primarily analytical/mathematical models based on game theory and microeconomics. This involves constructing mathematical frameworks representing market scenarios with various decision-makers, for example, consumers, competing firms, manufacturers and retailers, and government agencies.
