Research Process and Philosophy:

I fell in love with Operations Research while doing my Ph.D. coursework at IIMA. Under the discipline, I am interested in modeling (mathematical), identifying better models (proving some mathematical statements), and exact algorithm generation (how to solve these models). In my published and unpublished work, I have/am used/using all these three paradigms.

One of my goals in my academic life is to keep up with at least one of the ten commandments given by Edsger Djikstra pertaining to academic research (link). Personally, I agree more with commandments 1, 3, and 7.
