Arnab Choudhury is currently a doctoral student (PhD – Strategy) at the Columbia Business School, Columbia University. His research interests are in the area of Economics of Technology and Innovation.
His research focusses on how and when the convergence of radical and new technologies impacts a firm's competitive edge and longevity. He studies broadly two main avenues: firstly, how technological blend can shift industry borders, ushering in new competitors with unique skills, and altering a firm's capability balance. And secondly how and when this technology fusion affects product market rivalry.
Furthermore, Arnab is also interested in strategic decision making in situations of uncertainty. He focusses on the integration of topological methods into strategic decision-making, thereby advancing the existing frameworks which are mostly withing planar scope, and also offering a nuanced and comprehensive method to understand and navigate the multi-dimensional space of decision-making.
Arnab earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in mathematics and computation before enrolling in Columbia University's PhD program. He then spent two years conducting pre-doctoral research at the Indian School of Business, specializing in strategy and innovation research.
