For updates on my writing and research, please sign up for my newsletter, EconHistorienne, below.


I am a business historian by choice, a journalist by training, a writer at heart, and an accidental poet. I hold a Master’s in Global Political Economy from London School of Economics and Political Science. I led digital for two News Corp startups in India, where I built high-performance teams, and leveraged content to create high growth digital news products. I have chased depth and fresh learnings every few years of my life, and today, from the time-tested place of curiosity and adventure, I am researching the long run evolution of Indian capitalism across the 20th century. I am passionate about building or contributing new ventures / perspectives / areas of knowledge, writing across genres, and travelling solo. more here.
