Economics | Policy | Social Impact, Social Development

I'm an economist by training and have worked in management consulting as well as the tech startup space. I have over 6 years of management consulting experience with a focus on education, energy, and public finance. I have assisted governments and donor agencies in design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of results-based development programs. I have also worked closely with tech and tech-enabled startups for close to 5 years. I helped build and scale an online education product globally, and have advised early stage startups on product strategy and fundraising. In my areas of work, I have seen that a sound social protection framework can prepare the ground for lasting gains for broader socio-economic development, which is why I volunteered as a contributing writer and Ambassador for the platform. I am interested in collaborating to build innovative and evidence-based solutions to the development issues we face today.
