Dr. Gupta has been interested in 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 equipments or infrastructural projects) where non-price factors (e.g., quality) become equally important. He has also become increasingly interested in new product development, innovation management and agricultural operations. Often his work falls at the interface of operations management and economics, in which he uses models from economics as building blocks to study operations problems.
Dr. Gupta has enjoyed teaching business statistics, operations management and prescriptive analytics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. While being a teaching assistant during his doctoral studies, he also gained experience in delivering a broad set of courses in supply-chain management.
