Professor D. P. Dash is an Indian citizen, raised mainly in Bhubaneswar, India. Prof Dash studied technology and management (BTech Honours, Indian Institute of Technology; PostGradDip, Xavier Institute of Management, India) and systems thinking and action research (PhD, Lincoln, UK). He has professional experience as an engineer and management consultant in the private sector, academic teaching and research experience in India, the UK, and Malaysia. Dash’s work reflects a curiosity about how persons from different backgrounds could converse and connect with each other, what might impede or facilitate such conversation, and the range of outcomes possible. He has pursued this theme in a variety of contexts, including sensitivity training, participatory planning and designing, professional development, community and organisational development, leadership, and research education. His key ideas are related to managing the boundary conditions for effective communication, coordination, and innovations in practical contexts. Dash has been a key initiator of the Journal of Research Practice and a co-editor since its beginning in 2005. RECENT ARTICLE: Dash, D. P. (2015).
