Q: Why did you join Strategy&? What have you been up to lately?

A: Fueled by the aspiration to continue working on strategic projects in the oil and gas sector and to further explore the international multicultural lifestyle, I decided to move to the Strategy& Dubai office in 2015. Since then, I have worked in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Abu Dhabi on several remarkable projects, including setting up an R&D arm, as well as an integrated refining and petrochemical subsidiary for a major national oil company. 

Q: What are some of your personal interests? How do you enjoy spending your time?

A: I have become an avid traveler since my first trip outside of India in 2006. My work has afforded me the opportunity to visit more than 30 countries in Europe, South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. While working in Norway, I took my most memorable trip: Traveling with National Geographic to the Archipelago of Svalbard to see the Arctic wildlife, including polar bears, and experience the midnight sun.

Outside of work, I love to spend time with family and play with my son. I indulge in games of table tennis, a sport I excel at, which I learned to play at the age of 10. I love playing tennis, as well, and play regularly with friends and Strategy& colleagues.
