I hail from New Delhi, India. During college, I received a dual degree: a bachelor’s degree in manufacturing engineering and a master’s degree in economics. This education really piqued my interest in the economy and businesses and led me to working with leading investment banking and private equity firms and the government.
Working as an analyst in investment banking and private equity firms, I worked across sectors and assisted multiple companies and startups in raising growth capital. I also became aware of the severe crunch of capital availability across these types of companies, which strengthened my passion for economics and finance. Later, transitioning to government roles at both the federal and state level, I witnessed the tangible impact of private capital deployment for emerging markets and their companies. I then decided to pursue my MBA degree to gain significant leadership experience and capital-raising exposure across global markets. Post-Kenan Flagler, my intention is to work in emerging markets finance and continue to address the capital availability challenges that many developing nations around the globe face.
My hobbies include reading, especially history books; long-distance running; and cooking. I enjoy spending time with friends and am an ardent supporter of Liverpool in the English Premier League.
