Profile Summary
  • Research & Teaching Interests

    I am a Professor of Marketing at the Institute of Rural Management Anand. Earlier, I was associated with the Portsmouth Business School, University of Portsmouth, UK, as a Research Fellow and Visiting Fellow. I carry about ten years of combined work experience in industry, academics, research, and consulting.

    My primary research interest is to study the notion of firm strategic orientations and explore the performance outcomes for organizations. My other research interest areas are sustainable consumption behavior, corporate social performance, and social-nonprofit-rural aspects of marketing.

    I have taught Marketing Management, Services Marketing, Strategic Marketing & Planning (through marketing simulations), Social and Nonprofit Marketing, and Rural Marketing courses to MBA students; and Structural Equation Modeling and Quantitative Research Methodology courses to doctoral students. 

    Publications & Honors

    Some of my research works have been published in international peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Marketing Management, Service Industries Journal, Journal of Strategic Marketing, Technological Forecasting & Social Change, Futures, Journal of Consumer Policy, Health Marketing Quarterly, International Journal of Rural Management, Emerald Emerging Markets Case Studies, Asian Case Research Journal among others. Some of my research works have received awards/recognition: the Academy of Marketing (AoM, UK) Conference 2011 best research paper award (sponsored by the Journal of Strategic Marketing and hosted by the University of Liverpool) in the competitive intelligence analysis & strategy track; 4th IIM-Ahmedabad conference on marketing in emerging economies best research paper award; 7th AIMS International conference on management first runner-up prize for the best research; and COSMAR 2008, Indian Institute of Science-Bangalore, second runner-up prize for the best doctoral research work. I was honored twice for the Best Reviewer Award for 2009 and 2011 by the Journal of Research Practice (Athabasca University Press, Open Access Journal, http://jrp.icaap.org/). In 2015, Elsevier shortlisted my paper "Personality and Older Consumers' Green Behavior in the UK" published in Futures journal from across its journal portfolio based on its potential social impact and sent it to the Atlas Advisory Board. 

    In 2014, I was selected in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 submission, Business and Management (UoA 19) unit of assessment, by the University of Portsmouth, UK. All the three selected papers were rated 3-star by the University REF panel. In the same year, I was invited to chair a session in the Marketing Strategy track at the 43rd European Marketing Academy Conference hosted by the University of Valencia, Spain, from 3-6 June 2014.

    Editorial Responsibilities

I am also serving as a member of the editorial team for the Journal of Research Practice (Athabasca University Press, Open Access Journal, http://jrp.icaap.org/).
