I’m a second-year MS in Applied Economics student at the University of San Francisco. I have worked as a data scientist at The Data Institute, Mahindra Susten, SugarBox and Happy Loans, solar finance at Sol Systems and energy efficiency at the Sierra Club. I have a BA in Economics from the University of Maryland.
We live in a unique time where big data allows us to test economic theory irl. I’m particularly interested in exploring research questions at the intersection of innovation, entrepreneurship and big data.
Some questions I’m thinking about right now:
- How do you reduce inequality and bias in innovation and entrepreneurship?
- How does physical proximity impact of 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!
