Hi there! I’m now a Londoner, originally from New York and Mumbai, and I care deeply about issues of digital inequality, responsible technology, and literacy education. I’m a sociotechnologist with extensive experience in data and AI policy, financial services, and ed-tech. I’d love to chat with you if you’re interested in any of the above topics!
As the Global Director of Government Data Solutions at Visa, I work at the intersection of payments data and government. I develop innovative data solutions for governments looking to use spend insights for policy input and measurement. Prior to this role, I was a Senior AI & Data Policy Manager at Visa, bridging the gap between frameworks on technology ethics and industry practice.
I started my career as a teacher through Teach for America and through being a teacher, I honed my skills of simplifying complex topics for wider audiences. My experience working in marginalized communities further developed as I led the community and growth teams at Newsela in New York and Zaya Learning Labs in Mumbai, bridging digital divides in literacy education in the US and in India. I moved from India to pursue a dual degree at Oxford. During my time at the Oxford Internet Institute, I studied the implications of mobile learning technologies in emerging markets through a gender and political economy lens. At Saïd Business school, I focused my studies on responsible business and impact finance/investing. I have a strong interest in tech ethics and the intersection of technology, society, and justice. I also hold a BSc in Education & Social Policy, Economics from Northwestern Univeresty. Recently, I won the global 100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics and Tech Women 100 awards in the UK.
