Earlier in my career, as the Head of Supply Chain Transformation at Cipla Ltd., I steered the company's digital supply chain strategy, enhancing on-time delivery for products across 160 countries, and company-wide digitization of operational processes.
A Wharton School alumnus, I possess an MBA in Healthcare and Business Analytics, completed a postgraduate fellowship in Liberal Studies at the Young India Fellowship, and earned a Bachelor of Technology with Honors in Chemical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur.
