Head of Product for Ads Growth, Small and Medium Business Ad Products. My team builds advertising products and grows Facebook Inc.'s 7M strong advertiser base. Previously I was head of emerging markets monetization for Facebook, establishing a new cross-functional team in London.

I'm passionate about helping small businesses globally grow via technology, and especially interested in working with women entrepreneurs.

I grew up in south India, trained as an engineer, dabbled in startups before focusing on building for businesses. In what seems like a past life, I carried the Olympic torch for India, and was Editor-in-chief of a music magazine in India (now an Advisor).
