- Welcome to my website!
I am an Associate Professor of Management in Ottawa, Canada. I received my academic training and education in North America, worked in industry in North America and India, and also spent part of my early school years in Nigeria.
In my research, I am drawn towards inter-disciplinary work, approaches that are both theoretically and empirically innovative, and real world issues as the starting point of investigation. My ongoing research is on grand challenges of global significance, in which I focus on the interaction between organizations and institutions, along with new organizing initiatives for socio-economic change. In my empirical work, I use both qualitative and quantitative methods with an eye on underlying philosophical - epistemological and ontological - issues.
I follow a highly interactive, case and discussion based approach to teaching. I teach in PhD, MBA (Executive/Regular) and undergraduate programs, and also deliver specialized lectures and workshops.
When I'm not researching or teaching in my subject areas, I spend time in nature (in Canada's beautiful capital area and beyond), read and translate poetry, read news from around the world, play racquet sports, browse through bookstores, and indulge in some yoga.
I hope you find this site useful. Thanks for visiting!
