Dr. Gupta's research is focused on analyzing operational issues in sourcing and designing optimal procurement strategies that incorporate them. This includes sourcing commodities where price is the primary concern, and specialized products (such as complex manufacturing equipment or infrastructural projects) where non-price factors (e.g., quality) become equally important. Often his work falls at the interface of operations management and economics -- using models from economics as building blocks to study operations problems. He has also become increasingly interested in studying agricultural operations, the economics of food supply-chains, and the effectiveness of public schemes in achieving their desired (welfare maximizing) goals.

Dr. Gupta has enjoyed teaching business statistics, operations management and prescriptive analytics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
