I am an aspiring policy engineer with a commitment to create a rational and collaborative social order. I envision myself working to amalgamate the techniques of mathematical computations and data science with the principles of public policy to successfully advance initiatives in international and rural development. I grew up on a farm near the beautiful city of Amritsar in Punjab, India. The focus of my education was on studying the application of statistical methods, scenario writing, simulation analyses, and optimization techniques in initiatives in global economic and financial systems.
I love to read, write and travel, but I love a good discussion more than anything. Talk to me about anything with true fervor and passion, and I’m all yours. My goal in life is a better life for everyone. My path is policy making. My destination?
