About Me

Hi there! I’m 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 edtech and now financial services. I recently finished my studies at the University of Oxford with a dual degree in MSc, Social Science of the Internet at the Oxford Internet Institute and an MBA at the Saïd Business School.

I started my career as a teacher through Teach for America and have since led teams at startups that work with largely marginalized communities to bridge digital divides in literacy education both in the US and in India. I led the community and growth teams at Newsela in New York and Zaya Learning Labs in Mumbai. 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 am now the Senior AI & Data Policy Manager at Visa and work to bridge the gap between frameworks and theories on ethical practice in technology with industry practice. If you would like me to write for your publication, lead a workshop on tech ethics, or speak at your organization, please do not hesitate to contact me.
