Research interests

I use supply chain and operations management tools to improve access to pharmaceutical drugs. I use empirical research techniques to answer questions in two main areas -

  • Drug innovation - This stream aims at providing patients access to safe and effective novel drugs. Some examples include managing speed-quality trade-offs in the approval of novel drugs and strategic implications of operational transparency on drug novelty

  • Drug shortages - This stream aims at improving resilience in the generic drugs supply chain. Some examples include using operational transparency to manage panic buying and manufacturing quality failures as drivers of drug shortages
