I have over a decade of experience in financial inclusion. I began my journey in inclusive development with grant based programs in health care and education. I then pivoted to enabling access to capital to institutions and customers.
While I believe in the power of good finance, my larger interests lie in addressing inequities and exclusion by examining and re-designing systems to become inclusive.
I currently consult, teach a course on decision analysis for business as part of the GBA program offered by the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and am a Senior Fellow at the Henry J. Leir Institute, where I study the financial lives of vulnerable customers.
The challenge of reducing inequities globally cannot be achieved by a single individual. It means engaging with practitioners from many different disciplines and tackling the many challenges together.
My experience is varied and comprises banking, structured finance, customer research and customer centric business models. More recently, I have begun working on systems thinking and measuring social impact.
I bring a vast repertoire of experiences across countries, various aspects of inclusive finance, academic expertise, and enjoy working with different ideas and viewpoints.
