Business Advisor at Something Borrowed - LetsShare AS
About me

I am a business analyst with a passion for data, innovation and start-ups. Originally from India, I grew up in London having completed my postgraduate degree in Economics (MSc Economics and Strategy) from Imperial College London in 2013. I started working as an Analyst when I was 20 years old and have collected 5 years of solid work experience since then, from companies like American Express, Statoil and Aker Solutions with long term assignments in UK, USA, Malaysia and Norway.

Having completed the two year International Talent Program at Aker Solutions, I recently left my full time job as an Operational Improvement Project Manager with the ambition to join a growing start-up that will redefine its industry. I have been undertaking several online educational programs in Advanced Data Analytics focussed on SQL, Tableau and Python through Udemy and Udacity to train myself as a data scientist. I am also working with various startups including a Shared Economy venture - developing their business case and tracking analytics. 

Apart from being a proud geek who dreams about IoT and Big Data revolutions, I enjoy travelling and hosting dinner parties :)
