Currently, I am an empirical researcher and predominantly work with large panel datasets to uncover empirical insights. Over time, I have collected some exclusive large datasets for my research projects. Since I am interested in theories and implications of connectivity, I extensively employ social network analyses and related statistical techniques in my research.
However, I like to think of myself as an ideator and an aspiring theorist because, as Descartes said, the essence of being human is 'I think, therefore I am' *.
I am a phenomenon-driven researcher. Most of my research ideas have come from observing the world around me. I am a reflective and curious person by nature and passionate about research. Naturally, most of my own experiences and that of my friends make their way into my research investigation process.
My current research can be categorized into two broad streams- 1. investment networks and their implications for the productivity of firms, 2. board networks and their implications for the compensation of individual directors.
