Personal profile

Research interests

I am a PhD Student at the Tilburg Law and Economics Centre (TILEC), Department of Law, Technology, Markets, and Society (LTMS), Tilburg Law School (TLS). My PhD study is on the genesis, evolution and resilience of ETSI, the European standard-setting body in the ICT domain. My work primarily focuses on gaining an understanding of institutional change by formal ICT SDOs since the 1980s. 

I'm part of a research effort on the origins, and evolution of rule-making (standard-setting) by private and hybrid bodies in goods/ manufacturing, taking into account exogenous shocks such as crisis events. This research is conducted within the framework of 'The Resilience and Evolution of Economic Activism and the Role of Law' (REVEAL) project led by Prof. Delimatsis, and with Prof. PartitiProf. Bijlmakers, and Prof. Borowicz.

Adjacent research interests include competition law aspects specific to standard-setting and institutional change in formal SDOs in heavy industry, particularly the automotive and the aircraft industry.


After completing my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, I worked on the development and application of advanced composites for aerospace applications for 5 years. I, then, pursued the Masters in Regulatory Governance programme at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. For the next 3 years and prior to joining TILEC, I worked for an academia based research center, a development consultancy firm and a project consultancy firm (transaction advisory services).
