For me, research and teaching are two sides of the same coin; one is about the creation of new knowledge, while the other involves sharing the same in an accessible way to inspire bright, young minds. My teaching philosophy is to help students see problems in innovative ways by integrating cutting edge knowledge from seemingly diverse disciplines such as Information Systems, Finance and Marketing. I challenge them to reach beyond the confines of conventional thinking and to develop novel solutions to real-world business problems.
