Research Interests

Real Options Analysis: Real options analysis (ROA) applies option valuation techniques to capital budgeting decisions. A real option itself, is the right - but not the obligation- to undertake certain business initiatives, such as deferring, abandoning, expanding, staging, or contracting a capital investment project. Real options are generally distinguished from conventional financial options in that they are not typically traded as securities, and do not usually involve decisions on an underlying asset that is traded as a financial security. A further distinction is that option holders here, i.e. management, can directly influence the value of the option’s underlying project; whereas this is not a consideration as regards the underlying security of a financial option. Real options analysis, as a discipline, extends from its application in corporate finance, to decision making under uncertainty in general, adapting the techniques developed for financial options to "real-life" decisions.

Knowledge Management: Knowledge management (KM) is the process of capturing, developing, sharing, and effectively using organizational knowledge. It refers to a multi-disciplined approach to achieving organizational objectives by making the best use of knowledge

Engineering Statistics: Engineering statistics combines engineering and statistics:

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology for formulating scientific and engineering problems using statistical models. The protocol specifies a randomization procedure for the experiment and specifies the primary data-analysis, particularly in hypothesis testing. The use of optimal (or near optimal) designs reduces the cost of experimentation.

Quality control and process control use statistics as a tool to manage conformance to specifications of manufacturing processes and their products.

Time and methods engineering use statistics to study repetitive operations in manufacturing in order to set standards and find optimum (in some sense) manufacturing procedures.

Reliability engineering, which measures the ability of a system to perform for its intended function (and time) and has tools for improving performance.

Probabilistic design involving the use of probability in product and system design.

System identification uses statistical methods to build mathematical models of dynamical systems from measured data.

Facilities Planning: is an interdisciplinary field devoted to the coordination of space, infrastructure, people and organization, often associated with the administration of office blocks, arenas, schools, convention centers, shopping complexes, hospitals, hotels, etc. However, FM facilitates on a wider range of activities than just business services and these are referred to as non-core functions.
