Our core research focus is currently on the following domains

  • Technology

Our research evaluates the impact of technology in areas such as urban management, tourism, health, safety, compliance, education and economy. While technology has unleashed the 21st century economy of the world, it has also released plethora of new problems that the world hasn’t faced in the last several centuries. Our research in this area looks at how technology can be used to unleash the potential of many industries, cities and governments. At the same time we also explore the challenges that are also exposed because of rapid technology adoption without the appropriate change management within societies, government policies and communities to adapt to technological changes. Digitisation, Digitalisation and Transformation are the stages of technology evolution that can be of immense benefit to sustainability of societies,  communities and the entire earth if the research leading to such adoptions are critically done with an interdisciplinary approach. Our current focus on technology is more focused on those that benefit the society at large rather than just few individuals. Research focus areas include:

  • Urban Management
  • Tourism
  • Health and Hygiene
  • Micro-finance
  • Data as a Service
  • Lean Startups
  • Design Thinking



We look tourism through interdisciplinary perspective and analyse it’s impact on people at large. Growing development and dependency over tourism and its allied infrastructure has created a large amount of pressure on our environment, society, culture and economy. It is required to bring a critical perspective to understand tourism’s positive and negative impact on the world to influence informed, inclusive and sustainable decision and policy making.
We research tourism to bring changes in policy and implementation to ensure its contribution for sustainable economic growth, alleviating poverty, conserving biodiversity, preserving culture and traditions, and creating employment opportunities for local communities.
We research policies and practice adopted by various stakeholder in tourism and how it is affecting and benefiting the lives and livelihood of local community. We help to develop more sustainable and inclusive framework for development of tourism which will have less social, ecological impact. We believe on ensuring the right of indigenous community of tourism destinations over their natural resource, culture, traditions and governance. Our current topic of research are:
  • Tourism and Disaster Management
  • Tourism and Trade
  • Tourism and Education



We provide a interdisciplinary perspective at the national and international economic relations and their on the impacts of trade and economic policies. We work to suggest the critical areas which require attention of governments to strengthen their econmic postured. We analyse economic issues using quantitative and qualitative data analyses frameworks. We aim to support student, researcher, policy maker, organisations and government in shaping their critical understanding on economic legislation and  applicability in reference to strengthening economies. Along with this, we also help organisations to understand public policies and their impact on market scenarios to take informed decision for economic development.
