In 2017 we published our book “Reaching 50 Million Nanostores – Retail Distribution in Emerging Megacities”. Research in this domain has grown substantially in the past few years, with the first papers now having been published by various authors in the top journals of our field, along with many others in other academic and industry journals. In this talk, I will provide a brief introduction of my research perspective on the field, along with an overview of some of our published work, work under review, and studies currently in progress. These include stylized modeling work, traditional optimization, field experimentation, and econometric analysis of observational data. I will conclude by sharing some of the recent exciting developments in the field driven by the many technology startups entering this important part of retail.
