About me

I find motivation in setting knowledge free by building autonomous and proud communities that take ownership in fulfilling this mission. I enjoy watching world cinema and learn new languages through them.

My work

I serve as Regional Manager, Strategic Partnerships for Asia and the Eastern European region at The Wikimedia Foundation, based out of Doha, Qatar. I strive to build strategic partnerships to expand awareness, reach, and usage of Wikimedia projects in the region, particularly in India.

Before joining WMF, I served as Program Director for Wikimedia India. My educational background includes a Master’s degree in Science from the Technical University of Munich.

However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
