Biographie

I currently co-lead the Internet Society's project on Digital Sovereignty and have been heading their policy and advocacy work in India since January 2021.

Since the start of my career, I have been involved in advocating for stronger digital rights in international and national fora. As Chair of the Cross-Community Working Party on Human Rights at ICANN, I designed and presented the first Human Rights Impact Assessment to their Government Advisory Council. I have also worked with the Government of India for a year, advising and drafting policies for them.

I was featured on UN’s Talking Tech initiative, which highlights 200 women globally who are role models and leaders in the technology sector. The Thomson Reuters Foundation selected me as a Changemaker in 2021 as a digital rights advocate.

I love writing and have published extensively on various facets of internet governance. I'm based in Bangalore, India.
