He holds a number of patents in the quantification of human behavior.

His research took him to Stanford University where he partnered with leading researchers to launch HireLabs. His techniques of pairing and matching, have been used in talent identification and at leadership development programs at organizations including Foundation of Young Intellectuals (serving artists in New York), and LeadershipDNA (serving students at Stanford University), he served as Vice Chairman in both organizations. He recently developed the ‘iHR’ and ‘OccupationDNA’ concepts for institutional clients and government agencies that are looking for an integrated human resource solution to better manage their talent. He advises government agencies in labor and talent management in the Middle East and South Asia. Prior to starting HireLabs, he served as Managing Director of ILR, a private equity firm.
