Adita Sehgal

Delhi (India)

I am an optimistic and focused professional, possessing high levels of unrelenting resilience and a conviction to make a difference. I am motivated by new learning opportunities and challenges and have a high risk-taking potential.

Through my academic pursuits -- Master of Arts in Economics -- I possess a firm grasp on the wide-ranging concepts of economics as a discipline and its linkages to the domestic and global market dynamics.

I started my professional life in 2011, when I was recruited as a Research Associate in the energy division of India Infrastructure Publishing. Thereafter, I was promoted to a Research Analyst position and am currently working as an Energy Consultant (with a special focus on oil and gas sector). My work profile entails tracking, analyzing and reporting the trends and outlook of energy sector. In 2014, I assumed the independent charge (of a 6-member team) of Global Gas Transport, which is a subscription-based online repository of global gas industry developments.

I am a travel- and adventure-enthusiast. Of my many journeys, I'm particularly proud of having experienced the Himalayas in varied forms, including paragliding over the snow-clad Dhauladhar range at 20,000 feet; driving on the world’s highest motorable road at Khardung La; rafting for a 46 km stretch in category-IV rapids in river Zanskar in the Tethys Himalayan range; completing an 8-day 80km trekking summit at 14,000 ft in the Pir Panjal Himalayan range, and now preparing to undertake the world-famous Chaddar (frozen-river) trek in Leh in January 2015.

My travelling experiences have not only alllowed me to become a people's person, but also helped me get a sneak-peek into the diversity that both nature and humanity has to offer. Such experiences have also enhanced my potential to embrace and function well under challenging situations.
