As an MBA student with a tech background and a passion for Product Management, I bring a unique blend of business acumen and technical understanding to the table. With a strong understanding of market research, customer insights, and data-driven decision-making, I can develop and deliver successful products that meet customers’ needs and drive business growth. My analytical and leadership skills allow me to effectively communicate and collaborate with cross-functional teams, including engineering, design, marketing, and sales, to bring a product to market. I am driven by the challenge of solving complex problems and finding creative solutions to meet customer needs, and I am always seeking new opportunities to learn and grow in my field.

I have also worked as Associate Software Engineer at Refinitiv for two years. In my exposure to the different functions of my team at Refinitiv, I was highly intrigued by the planning, organizing, and supervising that go into making a project successful.

I look forward to learning new technologies and applying them in real-world situations. I have an optimistic attitude towards work, which is my secret to keeping myself focused during all challenging situations. I believe that with my skills and aptitude, there will always be more opportunities to achieve.
