LSE: MSc. Media, Communication and Development
Discerning the Dominant Discourse in the World Summit on the Information Society
Present occupation: Consultant, United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP)
Country of origin: New Delhi, India
I am presently working with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), based at their regional headquarters, in the capacity of a consultant. Assigned to the Information and Communications Technology and Disaster Risk Reduction Division at UNESCAP, I am contributing to communications as well as other tasks. This opportunity enables me to combine two key passions – sustainable development and ICT – in innovative ways.
Prior to the assignment with UNESCAP, I worked with an international environmental organization IUCN for European Union development project implementation in Southeast Asia. I have also acquired past experience with the European Commission, the executive body of the EU, in the field of research and innovation.
LSE’s Department of Media and Communications enabled me to develop my interests and pursue my passion. The administrative, careers and recruitment sections at LSE provided vital guidance and encouragement along the way. I truly believe LSE was the experience of a lifetime.
I welcome any questions and will seek to assist to my very best.
