"The PhD program at IE has been a fantastic opportunity to meet kind, smart and resilient individuals, some of whom have become close friends and mentors. I believe a doctoral degree in management should be concomitant with learning to manage the self."

About me

I´m a PhD candidate in the Operations department at IE Business School, Spain. My research aims to understand how suggestions influence decision-making, both at the individual and the group level. I´m particularly interested in algorithmic suggestions and how humans interact with machines. I have also served as a teaching assistant for quantitative methods courses at the doctoral level. Prior to joining IE, I worked as a technology consultant in Austin, Texas, helping law firms in patent litigations. I hold a Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Trichy, India. I enjoy reading and suffer writing. I´m happiest when I´m in nature, playing a sport or idling with friends and family.
