I am a blockchain researcher and solution designer. I am currently working in the area of identity management, blockchain interoperability and new business models based out of blockchain.
Since the blockchain has crossed the chasm and is now helping businesses, it has invited researchers to study the underpinnings of such implementation to develop normative models. I am currently exploring the formative literature in blockchain to develop normative theory in blockchain to help managers use blockchain.
I have several research projects in Blockchain starting from reviewing the antecedents of implementing blockchain in business to designing new organizational structures based out of smart contract. I am also currently review a few protocols and working on improving them.
I believe that blockchain will be more effective when we have the convergence of IOT and Machine learning with blockchain technologies. My research is focused on Blockchain smart contracts. One area that I am actively engaged is defining smart contract in an oligopoly configuration which is generally seen in a supply chain network. I am designing a win-win model based on game theory to define such relationship.
