I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management at Scheller College of Business, the co-director of Sustainable-X, and a Brook Byers Institute Faculty Fellow. Before joining Georgia Tech, I was an Assistant Professor of Operations Management at INSEAD.
My research involves using data, analytics, and mathematical modeling to address sustainability and efficiency issues in innovative business models. I also study operations management challenges faced by companies in emerging markets. More generally, my research investigates how organizations can use operational excellence and business model innovation to generate positive social and environmental impact while increasing profits.
My teaching is intertwined with my research and focuses on the relationship between operations management, business model innovation, and sustainability. I have won the INSEAD MBA's Best Teacher Award and have received INSEAD's "Dean's Commendation for Excellence in MBA Teaching" multiple times. In 2019, the sustainability pedagogical material that I have developed was awarded the Page Prize. At Georgia Tech, I was a Jim Pope Create-X Fellow in 2021.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Operations Research from MIT. I hold an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp) and a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Universidade de Brasília (UnB).
