Bio:

I have extensive experience in technology design and development for women in developing markets. In my previous role as a Project Officer for the Lemelson Foundations Initiative in collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology Madras and Impoverished Innovations Network, I offered technological and business advice to impoverished innovators and helped bring innovations to market for over three years. I attended Dalarna University, Sweden to study development of modular products en-route to a Masters in Mechanical Engineering. I have recently completed an MBA in Social and Sustainable Enterprises and below is a short list of my awards and achievements.
