About

I am a business analyst with a passion for data, technology and entrepreneurship. 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. Having spent the last four years in the Oil and Gas Industry in various commercial assignments in Houston, Kuala Lumpur, London and Oslo, in my current day job, I manage a portfolio of 45 Europe based clients comprising Oil & Gas Companies, Hedge Funds, Investment Banks & Consulting Companies.

With the objective of being part of a fast paced company that will redefine its industry, I have been training myself as a data scientist having completed several online educational programs in Data Analytics focused on SQL, Tableau and Python through Udemy and Udacity. I also do freelance projects with Oslo based startups developing their business cases and pitch decks as well as setting up their Performance Measurement and Analytics strategy.

Based on the current trends towards automation that have led to grave forecasts of mass elimination of traditional jobs, and from my own experience of downturn in the oil and gas industry, I founded an initiative called Reskill.Movement wherein I develop outplacement programs for employees affected or at risk of redundancy from automation.

Apart from being a proud geek who dreams about IoT and Big Data revolutions, I enjoy reading, playing strategy board games and hosting dinner parties.
