Bio:

After obtaining my Master’s in Development Studies from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai in 2016, I worked with WWF-India for nearly 3.5 years. During this period, I had the opportunity to work on a diverse range of thematic areas such as community based governance, financial inclusion, livelihoods, human wildlife conflict, tourism, etc. with tribal and non-tribal communities in Kerala, Arunachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra. Working in these distinct landscapes and varied demographic groups across the nation, I got a sense of the immense amount of work that remains to be done for the sustainable development of these communities.

I see the Aspirational Districts Programme as an opportunity to focus my energies on one of my most beloved landscapes, Central India, and harness the incomparable potential of the government infrastructure and resources to bring a change in the lives of the people within the district. It is my goal to initiate long term change by focussing on streamlining and improving the systems and processes which shall remain long after the fellowship is ended.
