Anandalingam's primary areas of research are in the area of pricing, economics, design, and strategic issues in electronic markets and telecommunications networks. He joined Smith School in 2001, after holding positions at Wharton School in University of Pennsylvania, and at the University of Virginia.

Anandalingam earned his Ph.D. (1981) and S.M. (1977) in operations research with a minor in economics from Harvard University, and he holds a B.A./M.A. in electrical sciences from Cambridge University, England.

He is also the grandson of "the man who fathered the Tamil Eelam concept and introduced the word eelam into Sri Lanka's political vocabulary — Professor C. Suntharalingam."
