I have been working as a Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Jury Gualandris at the Ivey Business School. My research interests include systems thinking, data analytics, and mathematical modelling to address issues relating to circular economy and sustainability.  

My ongoing research aims at identifying, examining, and facilitating food discards and residual exchanges. The research considers cognitive, operational, and institutional factors enabling or constraining circularity within and across businesses. The main focus in on quantifying from a life cycle perspective the extent to which the repurposing of food discards between businesses mitigates climate change. 

My scholarly publications cover several aspects of circular economy, such as decarbonization and waste management, using tools and techniques, including life cycle assessment and mathematical modelling (optimization and simulation). Prior to joining as a Postdoctoral Fellow, I completed my PhD on urban resource efficiency in India from TERI School of Advanced Studies, New Delhi. I also worked as Renewable Energy Specialist and was involved in planning and execution of large-scale solar projects in India.
