I am a PhD candidate at Purdue University’s Innovation Science Laboratory. My work focuses on better understanding the tension between risk management and growth in enterprises with the objective of building resilient organizations. Specific research interests include understanding enterprise risks as complex networks and pursuing systematic, repeatable innovation using the Innovation Science lab’s innovation toolkit.

A proposal to study enterprise risk management using complexity theory was awarded by the Decision, Risk, and Management Science Program of the National Science Foundation!
