I have experience in dealing with fiscal and statutory authorities, and manage the relationship with market analyst. In the past 5 years I have been running my own consulting business focusing on financial management and sustainability.
My research interest is in the domain of corporate strategy, and sustainability. My research topic is Corporate Accountability and Valuation of Externalities: connecting social progress with the value of the firm’s strategy. I am interested in alternative framework of corporate accountability for sustainable use of all resources within the context of a market economy. The main concern for me is how to create an alternative mechanism for corporate engagement in the sustainability agenda how to develop measurement systems that create a framework of corporate value creation which takes into account financial, environmental, social and human capital specific to the firm.

Statement of Motivation for a DBA
The motivation for my DBA is to gain knowledge and a formal understanding of the issues in promoting a more sustainable and just world.

I also have a deep concern for the large part of humanity that have poor or no access to the basic needs for well being and ability to flourish as human beings. I hope to devote the rest of my life becoming a strong advocate for sustainable and just world.
