  • In a few words: I graduated from the University of Delhi, India with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Economics with minors in Management and Finance. Post which I have gained practical expertise through client-facing roles with projects in corroboration with World Bank, CSR of top Fortune 500 companies and Governmental Think Tanks. It has helped me gain meaningful insights into how relatively micro-level data-driven decisions can carry significant macroeconomic impacts across nations in real life. Witnessing this enthralled me to strengthen my collection of knowledge & experience on project analysis and management by initiating my master’s at PSE. I believe this opportunity will enable me to gain an analytical and innovative approach to address project viability and undertake comprehensive data-backed decisions. Please feel free to reach out to me by phone or email.

  • In a few words: After completing a Master’s degree in Economics with honours at the University of Verona (with a study experience in Germany), I decided to enroll in the SIA programme because I am very interested in investigating the impacts of economic decisions in the future, with a focus on sustainability and intergenerational equity. In particular, I like to understand how to make the best possible decisions from a rational perspective to maximise social welfare. Alongside academic experiences in research and teaching, I also have a passion for music, having completed a Master’s degree in violin.

  • In a few words: I studied applied mathematics and computer science in the French engineering school Ensimag. There, I discovered the very innovative field of data science, and in particular, machine learning algorithms. I became fascinated by their applications and potential in so many different fields. After graduating, and a successful internship as a data analyst at Tesla, I took a step back to consider how best to use the skills I learned in the real world. I wanted to use data science tools to have a real positive impact, improving society and the quality of our lives. And what better way to do that than by using the power of those tools to help make difficult decisions in the public sector and in macroeconomics? I took the plunge and I am now, for the first time, happily studying economics and meeting a new network of like-minded people!
