Harvard Business School Faculty Biography


Current research interests are mainly in managerial accounting. I am working on several projects.
  1. I am studying control issues in inter-organizational settings. In particular, I focus on retail channel design --the allocation of retail stocking decisions to the manufacturer / retailer and the use of accounting information for belief revision and contracting in a channel .
  2. I am working on an analytical analysis of activity-based pricing. Under actitivy-based pricing firms unbundle their products and services and price them separately. In particular, I study the impact of activity-based pricing on product market competition and supplier-customer fit. I also study activity-based pricing in a monopoly and its impact on supply chain welfare.
  3. I am doing a field study on the use of a Balanced Scorecard as a control device in a franchise setting.
