Me in Brief
Originally from Surrey, British Columbia, Ajnesh Prasad is a Ph.D. candidate at York University's Schulich School of Business and a graduate researcher at the York Centre for International and Security Studies (YCISS). He previously earned political science degrees from Queens University (M.A., 2006) and Simon Fraser University (B.A. Honors, 2004).
Ajnesh's research is largely interdisciplinary, though it focuses on critical management studies and business ethics. He is particularly interested in applying critical theory to conceptualize the discursive nature of organizational phenomena. He has previously written on the creation of institutionalized ethics and ethical decision-making from an intra-organizational perspective.
Ajnesh's research articles have appeared in several scholarly journals including Canadian Woman Studies and Peace Review. His book reviews have been published in the Canadian Review of Sociology and Canadian Ethnic Studies. In addition to his research activities, Ajnesh has served as a teaching assistant for several courses in political science, interdisciplinary studies, and management.
Over the duration of his studies, he has received numerous academic awards, including the Schulich Entrance Scholarship of Merit (2006-07), the Doctoral Research Award for the Study of Women in Management (2007), and best student paper awards from the Southwestern Social Science Association (2005) and the Midwest Sociological Society (2007). His current research is supported through an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (2007-08).
