He has worked closely with the industry, and has successfully incubated companies in education and technology.
"He, along with the university's leadership team, will look at strengthening SNU as an outstanding research-driven, multidisciplinary institution, and also be host to a world-class management school," the statement said.

He has been a visiting researcher in UK and France and has over 34 years experience in the education industry.
"The Shiv Nadar University, today is at an important juncture as it makes significant investments in research, infrastructure, technology and people to deliver on its vision of becoming the best research-based, multidisciplinary university of global stature and impact. We will continue to look for faculty who share our vision and push the frontiers of knowledge through innovative research," Shikhar Malhotra, pro-chancellor at Shiv Nadar University, said.
