About me

I am an urban researcher with experience working in Indian cities. I did my masters from Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai. For the last four years, I have consulted for development sector clients through my firm, CPC Analytics. I am part of the open-data community and am motivated to harness data and tech for public interest. I am interested in using ICT, big data, and computational techniques to understand and address socio-economic and spaial inequalities in cities. I am also interested in understanding the spread, use, politics and effects of digital technologies in cities in developing countries.
