His work at McKinsey & Company, Goldman Sachs and the Government of India has helped him view technology’s potential from different vantage points. He continues to explore India’s place in this new world order through his work as a technology venture capitalist and a non-resident Scholar at Carnegie India. He is an alumnus of the Harvard Kennedy School, the Wharton School and Haverford College.
