He has worked as a senior data scientist and artificial intelligence consultant for defense, green energy, financial technology, and urban design companies. He was awarded the Founders’ Award by the LBS Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and was selected as a Young Leader by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Center of Real Estate).

Milind still holds his architectural license, a fact endearingly exploited by his colleagues!
