Education: Bachelor of Technology, NITK Surathkal; graduated in 2018

Interested in: Energy, supply chain management
My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Researching and networking to compile a well-rounded application
About me: I grew up in Bangalore, India and completed my undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at NITK, Surathkal. During this time, I was a part of the BAJA SAE team and helped design, build, test and race all-terrain vehicles. I was fortunate enough to intern at two prominent firms in the automotive sector and play on the basketball team during my four years at university. Funnily enough, despite my experience in engineering and the automotive sector, I decided to move into a career in technology consulting at Deloitte. I worked with clients in the healthcare sector, helping them use technology to transform their businesses. Whilst at Deloitte I became interested in the potential that technology has to positively impact the environment and started researching its applications in creating greener supply chains and smarter energy grids. With the goal of transitioning into a career in data analytics in the renewable energy sector, I applied to the Masters in Analytics and Management at LBS. I am keen on learning about how data science can be used to drive more responsible business. Outside of school, I play a lot of basketball and love to trek, garden and look after dogs.
Three topics I can be approached about: Data analytics and energy; Basketball Club; moving into postgraduate studies after work
