Areas of Expertise
  • Procurement Management
  • Agricultural Operations Management
  • Assistant Professor, since 2018

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 equipments or infrastructural projects) where non-price factors (e.g., quality) become equally important. He has also become increasingly interested in managing incentives in inter-organizational projects and agricultural operations. Often his work falls at the interface of operations management and economics. 

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