The backstory

Advancements in the field of technology have always fascinated me. I first joined the workforce as a programmer, and by chance, I received an opportunity to dabble in data — there has been no looking back. From pursuing a Masters in Data Science to building my expertise in various data-related roles, I have kept myself abreast of developments in the field of data-related technologies to pace up with this dynamic and ever-changing world of science.

What I’ve learnt

  • Change is inevitable, embrace it, be a pioneer and motivate others to accept the dynamic nature of technology.
  • Learning is a never-ending exercise, be open to challenges and believe every day has something new to offer.
