I’m a co-founder at Choose To Thinq, where we help teams and individuals be deliberate about their future relevance. I have an academic background in computer science, with a Masters degree from IIT Bombay. Before starting Choose To Thinq, I was an applied researcher in the field of Natural Language Processing, which applies computation to natural language. I worked on areas like sentiment analysis, which tried to elicit the presence of emotion in text. I have also been part of innovation labs. I moved away from research and tech, because I’m a multi-disciplinary person at heart, and love exploring the intersection of diverse topics such as design, psychology, behaviour, science, and culture. Both my professional experiences and interests got me interested in how teams innovate, the role of culture in change and innovation, and how to systematically use curiosity to be relevant when the world changes slowly but surely. I’m an accomplished quizzer and quizmaster. I am the youngest winner of the BBC TV show Mastermind India, which was hosted by Siddhartha Basu. I also appeared on the show KBC as a guest, helping participants answer questions. I’m an avid reader, I have published short stories, and I like to deliberately build little habits for myself. All these have helped me in the work I do today.
