About me

I am a senior writer at Founding Fuel, and co-author of The Aadhaar Effect: Why the World’s Largest Identity Project Matters published by Oxford University Press in October 2018.

I write on technology, business, society, and how they influence each other. I am also involved with How India Lives, a data analysis and visualisation startup. Prior to Founding Fuel, I worked as a journalist with Forbes India and Economic Times. My stories have also appeared in The Hindu, Mint, Quartz and Scroll.

I have degrees in economics and financial management from Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning. I was a 2014 Tow Knight Entrepreneurial Journalism Fellow at Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY. I won Polestar Award for business feature in 2017 for my story Gigerenzer's Simple Rules.

I like reading philosophy, and I hope to write a series on books on the subject for children some day.
