I am a lawyer and public policy researcher working on issues at the intersection of technology and society.
I am currently based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as a Fellow with the CyberBRICS Project at the Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) Law School, a collaborative research project to study digital governance and transformation strategies in the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) countries. Before this, I was involved in setting up and led the technology policy work at the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP), one of India's leading research institutions in the field of public economics and policy, from 2016-20.
My other policy engagements have included working as a researcher with the investigation unit of the Competition Commission of India, as a project officer in the Government of India -- UNDP Access to Justice Project, and a member of the research secretariat for the Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission that was set up by India's Ministry of Finance between 2011-13.
I studied law at the National Law School of India University, Bangalore and the University of Pennsylvania School of Law and am currently pursuing a PhD at the School of Public Policy, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi.
