Programme: MSc Media, Communication and Development, 2012

Current Position:  Reporting and Communications Specialist, United Nations Development Programme, Fiji

Country: India

I am presently working with UNDP at their Pacific subregional headquarters in Suva, Fiji. Assigned to UNDP's Effective Governance Team, I am contributing to reporting on ongoing projects as well as communications. This opportunity enables me to combine two key passions – sustainable development and ICT – in innovative ways. 

Prior to the assignment with UNDP, I worked with UNESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific) at their Asia-Pacific headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand in the field of ICT and disaster risk reduction. I came with a climate change adaptation background to South East Asia, having worked with IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) in the ASEAN region. 

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.
