Happiness, 1.02 (R) About us - The Happiness Team at ISB

The Happiness Team at Indian School of Business

Dr. Rajagopal Raghunathan Instructor

Dr. Raj Raghunathan is a visiting professor of marketing at the Indian School of Business (ISB) and professor of marketing at the McCombs school of business at The University of Texas at Austin. His research interests are in the area of "affect" (or emotions) and decision-making. In particular, he's interested in examining the impact that people's judgments and decisions have on their well-being. When not at in his office hard at work, Prof. Raj is usually having fun hanging out with family or friends. His hobbies include shooting the breeze, lying still on sunny beaches, reading, and playing cricket, ping pong (or table tennis) or badminton. You can find out more about Prof. Raj at www.happysmarts.com

Catherine Xavier Teaching Assistant

Catherine Xavier is Academic Associate at the Indian School of Business (ISB) and has been at ISB for 2 years. She graduated with an MBA from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. She is interested in pursuing a PhD in marketing/communications and hopes to get into a good school sometime in the near future. Meanwhile, she is having fun (and learning a lot) by helping "Dr. Happy smarts" teach his course on happiness, both at ISB and on Coursera. She is truly “happy” to work with Prof. Raj, and rates him as the best professor she has worked for. Catherine has also assisted a number of other professors at ISB (both permanent and visiting) with their courses. Catherine's idea of a good time is to chill out with her family and friends. Her perfect day equals hanging out with her Dad and baby-niece, Sasha, while sipping her favorite drink, coffee.

Reema Gupta ISB-Coursera Lead

Reema Gupta is the Associate Director of the Srini Raju Centre for Information Technology and the Networked Economy (SRITNE) at the Indian School of Business.
