Lalitha worked as a Senior Analyst dealing with research and policies issues on the various sector in South East Asia in Malaysia.

Qualifications

  • Ph.D

Research interests

  • Econometrics
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Behavioural Experiments
  • Game theory

Lalitha’s work is transdisciplinary with core activities in econometrics and supply chain but serving a larger purpose on managerial strategy and policy insights. She has an interest in the interplay between psychology and economics on what drives individuals’ actions, and how to improve the outcome of those actions by highlighting the cognitive biases.

Research projects

Lalitha is currently working on cap-and-trade model and signalling behaviour. She is also working on a field experiment on charitable giving examining decision making when respondents are indifferent to the choice. She has supervised MSc students on various topics including game-theoretic models for logistics and aviation industry, supplier evaluation models incorporating risk factors, the ecological footprint of the manufacturing industry in a developed nation, intention to use and perceived privacy of mHealth applications in China.
