He has done his Ph.D. in Economics from Jadavpur University. His doctoral thesis dealt with the topic ‘Indian Stock Market: Examination of validity of Geometric Brownian Motion (GBM) model to Stock Price Behaviour with particular emphasis on the Black Scholes Option Pricing Model’. He holds a bachelor degree in Production Engineering, and MBA from Jadavpur University.
Before joining the doctoral programme at Jadavpur University, he worked with multi-national and Indian firms for 10 years and 5 years in a Business School. Prior to joining IIM Indore he was with IIM Kozhikode and has a total teaching experience of 14 years.
He has published several articles in journals of repute and presented his work at various international and national conferences.
His current research interests include Empirical Finance and Econophysics. His teaching interests include Fixed Income Securities, Corporate Finance and Investment analysis at Post Graduate level and Econophysics at Ph.D. level.
