As a part of my role I am pursuing my PhD in Business under Prof. Jonathan Deacon and Dr. Paula Stephens. Using a narrative-led methodology, I am exploring the relationship between ethnic social context and Effectuation using the immensely successful Indian Business community – The Marwaris as a case example. The research explores the Entrepreneurial philosophy and approach of the Marwaris and identifies unique emergent themes that contributes to theory by asserting that definition of Entrepreneurship needs to contextually adaptable to the social and cultural context within which it operated while implicating that a Western universal perspective on Entrepreneurship may not apply in every ethnic context of Entrepreneurship.
Within Marketing I focus on research within Political Marketing, Entrepreneurial Marketing and Culture-specific consumer behavior patterns.
Besides my academic research I am passionate about Economics, Politics , International relations and Higher Education.
