About me

In Product Management at TE Connectivity and development at L&T, I've steered sustainable innovation in the Energy & Automotive sectors, enhancing customer engagement by 40% and cutting energy use by 30%. My design improvements for off-highway vehicles at L&T boosted efficiency and product quality. At TUM, I'm pursuing an M.Sc in Power Engineering to further my expertise in energy sustainability and entrepreneurship. My competencies include analytical thinking, strategic planning, and leadership. My life is vibrant with travel, photography, and music, fueling diverse perspectives and grounding me. Keen to drive sustainable product strategies, I'm open to new collaborations. Let's innovate for a better future together.
