About Professor Kalia

I moved to United States of America from India in Nov 1981 and joined Lehman Bros. as a senior analyst. In 1984 I moved to Manufactures Hanover Trust as a Senior Systems Analyst which later on became JP Morgan Chase Manhattan Bank. I worked in JP Morgan for 33 years and rose to the ranks of Executive Director. While working at JPMorgan in a senior role, I was teaching Information Security at City Tech part-time since 2009. I have a Doctorate in Professional Studies (DPS) and MS in Computer Science from the Pace university. I have an MBA with major in Finance from Rutgers, State University of NJ. I received my BS in Biology from Guru Nanak University, India and Graduate Diploma in Business from George Brown College, Toronto Canada. More

As a senior leadership member of the Application Infrastructure Operations I led the Application Engineering area of the Commercial Banking division of JPMorgan. My key focus was all aspects of Application performance testing, application monitoring and capacity planning and monitoring. I Architected and Implemented Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI&D) framework to automate application artifacts build and delivery. My doctorate research in Pervasive Computing from Pace University, involved a real life utility based application research. It improved the working conditions within the and a real technology experience.
Abstract of my Doctorate research: A pervasive computing approach to asset, problem, and knowledge management reduced the average time to complete all major helpdesk tasks, and led to faster data availability, improved data quality, improved help desk effectiveness, improved help desk Return on Investment (ROI), lower overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and increased user satisfaction.

“After working with JPMorgan for more than 33 years in multiple senior technology roles, I hope to move on to building the next generation of technology leaders at Saint Peter’s University”
