Greetings and welcome to my web-page. I hope you find all the information you are looking for here. Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions, thoughts or ideas.
I am an Assistant Professor at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. My research interests are on the intersection of economics, marketing, and information technology with a focus on social and mobile platforms. I am excited and blessed to follow my true passion – research and innovation – and hope to make some difference in the world. In this pursuit of happyness I admire the support from my parents, lovely wife, and three cute kids.
If you are interested in learning more about me, please feel free to browse other pages. I have occasionally tried to have my brain-dump on my blog but I am so irregular that on an average I have had 1 post per year. My new year resolution (every year) is to write something every month. (hoping that year will come soon)
Not too long ago, my doctors at USC (Dr Dennis Maceri and Dr David Ko) diagnosed me with an uncurable hearing loss making it harder for me to understand the words whispered to me. I was told that the cause of the loss was weakening of auditory nerve, which is also called Mild Sensorineural Hearing Loss. So, my apologies if you asked a question verbally and I asked to repeat it; please either speak up or write it out.
