I'm a Management Professor at the Nazarian College of Business in California State University Northridge. I also hold a Research Professorship at Clarkson University's Reh School of Business. My research focuses on the impact of culture and diversity in various aspects of work. I try to understand how the culture in which we have been socialized, impacts the way we think, feel and behave when interacting with other people or technology. My work has been funded by the Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences, Department of Homeland Security, and the National Science Foundation.

Majority of my work focuses on the influence of culture in international negotiations and diverse teams. I also examine the impact of culture in perceptions and use of technology such as automation and biometrics. I adopt an interdisciplinary approach in my research by incorporating theories rooted in communication, anthropology and psychology, along with paradigms rooted in computer science. Prior to joining CSUN, I was an Assistant Professor at Clarkson University with a joint appointment in the Reh School of Business and Coulter School of Engineering. I was also a Visiting Researcher at Columbia University's Jerome A. Chazen Institute for Global Business and Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute.
