WHAT I DO
As the PhD researcher at LUISS Guido Carli University, Rome, I explore how project-based organizations and multi-actor projects can overcome representational gaps between them and achieve collaboration. I explore concepts such as identification, boundary objects and conflict in complex projects. More of my research can be read here.
I also write novels and poems that explore the vivid psyches and emotions of people and their darker sides.
I travel a lot learning from other cultures and cuisines to understand people and also to set my novels in different locations. I am quite interested in photography and more details about my work, novels and a full profile can be seen below.
I have a Master of Global Management from Antwerp Management School, the Authonomous Management School of the University of Antwerp, Belgium, one of the prestigious b-schools in Europe, Financial Times ranked and AACSB and NVOA Accredited.
I am specialized in Marketing, Corporate Strategy and Transformations.
Before that, I did a Bachelors in Technology/Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, a renowned engineering school in India. I am well aware of technical jargon and can work with tech brands easily and effectively.
ME, MY READING AND MY NOVELS
I like reading books a lot. Ficition is my favourite genre with a focus on murder mysteries, suspense and thrillers. I love Sir Doyle, Kathy Reichs and Camilla Lackberg. I also read authors like Cicilia Ahern and Paulo Coelho. This interest made me an author specialising in suspense/thriller genre.
I have written and published my first novel The Silent Sound in December, 2013.
As dead bodies start to pile up, it is upto Kia Hills and Grace Withers to catch the killer before he strikes again. With her mother’s death still taunting her, Kia had utmost responsibility as the head of homicide. The grief of her husband’s loss made Grace weak. Can they both stop the murderer in time?

I am currently working on my next book, The MIrror, the story of the secret that is so deep. The web is so complex. The story is so disturbing. When a newly wed couple finds out that someone is trying to hurt them, Sid embarks on a mission to uncover the person who is trying to ruin his wife's life with a fabricated story full of lies. But what he unleashes is beyond his comprehension. This fast paced story takes the reader through the complex webs of human emotions, technology and unexplained stories. Read more about The MIrror here.
I am currently working on my next book, Finding Nour, a story of the hunt for a missing girl Nour Al-Mahdi where the reader is taken on a journey to the deepest corners of child trafficking. The story explores the psychological trauma that children subjected to abuse undergo. Set in a small European town and based on several real stories, the novel entertains with its fictional elements at the same time making the reader think. Read more about Finding Nour here.
I enjoy traveling. What entices me in traveling is meeting new people, learning about new cultures and tasting new foods. I have been to romantic havens like Venice and Milan, beautiful cities like Rome and Dubai, peaceful small-towns like Freiburg, business destinations like Basle and Luxembourg and more. I have lived in Antwerp for more than a year. Wherever I go, I try to meet new people and learn about their cultures. I am a big fan of just roaming around the city taking in the aesthetics and air the city has to offer; often the city itself shares its stories with you. A glass of drink with local people, listening to the stories they tell, is the perfect end to the day.

My favorite poem tells more about me - The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
