I’m a PhD student at the Management and Organizations (Macro) group at Berkeley Haas. Prior work experience includes: data science at The Data Institute, Mahindra Susten, SugarBox and Happy Loans ; solar finance at Sol Systems ; energy efficiency at the Sierra Club. I have a BA in Economics from the University of Maryland and an MS in Applied Economics from the University of San Francisco.
I’m particularly interested in exploring research questions at the intersection of innovation, entrepreneurship and technology.
Some questions I’m thinking about right now:
- How do you reduce inequality and bias in innovation and entrepreneurship?
- How does physical proximity impact knowledge diffusion, especially in a post Covid-19 pandemic world?
- How is innovation impacted by the democratization of technology? What are its limitations?
Other interests: I play the sitar and am always looking for people to jam with. Sometimes, I teach and blog about data science. I love networking and will often attend & speak at events. Come say hi if you’re attending any of the future events that I’ll be at!
