Professional biography

I hold an MSc in Organic Chemistry (University of Pune), an MBA in Marketing Management (University of Pune) and a PhD (The Open University Business School). My work concerns investigating issues that help or hinder innovation and development of the healthcare industries from developing countries. Before starting my PhD studies I worked in India with a biotechnology company and a highly respected medical device company managing operations in Western India region. After completion of my PhD I joined DPP on an ESRC funded project ‘Issues involved in diffusion of knowledge through migration of scientific labour in India’ and then school of Management at the University of Surrey. I am currently working as Senior Lecturer in International development and innovation at the Development Policy and Practice group. I am also associated with the Innogen Institute and School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh.

Research interests

My current work involves understanding role regulation and intermediaries such as industry associations play in facilitating inclusive innovation in emerging and low income countries. This research concentrates on healthcare sector and covers institutional and firm level issues in the medical device and biotechnology industries in India and South Africa.  The broader aim is to understand implication of inclusive innovations in ensuring affordable and accessible healthcare for poor people in developing countries.

My previous work involved significant research on industrial dynamics in industries from developing countries specifically focusing on evolution of capabilities, technology strategies and firm level issues involved in innovation management. It included investigating various issues associated with technology strategy, industrial development and inclusive innovation in developing countries.

Teaching interests

I am currently involved in teaching postgraduate modules on Global Development Management. It includes managing intrdouctory module:  T877 Development: Context and Practice and contributing to T878 Capacities for Managing Development.
