I graduated from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi and went on to do my Master’s in Neurobiology at the University of Amsterdam. Being there exposed me to the Circular Economy space and I decided to get a Minor in it. With some experience with consultancies in The Netherlands in the cleantech space, I now work in Bangalore, India to enable its transition to a circular economy with RENERGii.  We enable innovation in this space through our platform Circular Cities Asia.
