PhD researcher at the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I am a PhD student at the Department of Urban Studies and Planning working on air pollution. I have a Bachelor and Master of Technology in Energy Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (2013), an MSc in Environmental Change and Management (2014) and an MBA (2015) from the University of Oxford where I studied as a Rhodes Scholar. I then worked at UNEP for a year where I was responsible for deploying a low-cost air quality monitoring network in Nairobi, before starting work at MIT.
