Bio

"An unexamined decision is not worth making" – an alteration of the famous dictum by Socrates

My expertise lies in simplifying complex business problems and analysing them using data to identify value for organisations. With my first master’s degree in statistics, I am proficient in building statistical models and simulations to identify the root causes of issues. However, analytics alone is not enough. With my second master’s degree in MBA and extensive experience in working with senior leadership, I also understand that the business context matters equally. Throughout my career, I have hence blended both my quantitative and qualitative skills to provide actionable recommendations from practical analytic insights.

I am passionate about seeing through the execution of my recommendations despite the hurdles faced in data and people. My experience has taught me that executing the strategy is best achieved by adopting human-centric design thinking with the appropriate stakeholders who combine their instincts and analytics. My recommendations have also been based on the best practices from my work experience in diverse industries and geographies.

I am excited about the prospect of employing the latest advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, advanced analytics and richer datasets to solve increasingly complex business issues. Let's have a chat - it would be my pleasure to discuss how organisations can make informed decisions quicker.
