My name is Ashwin and I am a research Scholar in Marketing at DoMS, IIT Madras. I research on Services in B2B Marketing.

In 2017, I happened to attend the Doctoral summer school at IIM Ahmedabad and that is when Prof. Vishal Gupta took a class on quantitative techniques.

Vishal sir explained the concepts very well and I enjoyed his sessions. Post that, I have attended two of his workshops in virtual mode, last year and this year.

He is an inspiration for all of us and I look forward to attending all his workshops in the future.
