Prior to joining Virginia Tech, he received his M.B.A. and M.Sc. in Business Analytics form the W. P. Carey School of Business. His research interests include conversational AI, large language models (LLMs), chatbots, behavioral nudges, and cognitive biases.

Recently, his team won the award for the Most Impactful Case Study of Health IT in Action from the Conference on Health IT and Analytics (CHITA) in Washington D.C. for their paper about the role of artificial intelligence in online mental health screening. He has assumed various data analytics and management consulting roles at Fortune 500 companies, worked in a variety of managerial roles in different industries, and founded a transnational company before pursuing his doctoral studies.
