Since early adolescence till undergraduate studies, my volunteering stints have exposed me to opportunities for working on important developmental challenges like education, health & livelihood generation. Moving ahead in college, I took up more intricate roles, which involved solving social issues with technical expertise. Some examples include - developing inter-disciplinary innovative curriculums for children enrolled in NSS education programme, and designing outreach strategies to generate resources for several social activities of NSS.

With an undergraduate degree in Chemistry (Hansraj College, University of Delhi), I have pursued my Masters in Public Policy from National Law School of India University, Bengaluru.

The academic rigour has helped me acquire theoretical as well as analytical skills which were showcased and further strengthened during my several internships and projects. I've excelled in coursework in the following:
a. Policy Analysis Clinic
b. Research Methods
c. Regulatory Impact Analysis
d. Macro & Micro Economics
e. Law and Legal Methods
f. Public Finance
e. Political Economy

During two years of postgraduation, I have created a recommendation report for the Health Secretariat of Karnataka for improvement of PPP in healthcare, during my stint at Public Affairs Centre. I also participated in the BRICS Wellness Workshop, for contributing to the dialogues for co-operation among BRICS nations in the area of Traditional Medicine. Furthermore, I co-authored a research paper on “Regulation of Medical Devices in India”, which I presented at the 2nd International Conference on Advances in Health Care Management at IIM, Ahmedabad. Additionally, I have over 2 months of fieldwork experience in association with SCOPE Trichy and Centre for Child and Law, NLSIU, Bengaluru.

During my post-graduation, I've also worked in the Public Relations Team for the MPP programme, where I was responsible for coordinating all the PR activities for placements and handling the Twitter handle of the course.
