Fellow Profile

The reason I applied for EDF Climate Corps:
I previously worked as an automotive engineer designing passenger car seat parts. During my career, I provided solutions in the design of parts that reduced cost, time to manufacture and weight. The opportunity to interact with different global clients taught me the importance of people management. I applied for EDF Climate Corps because, as a responsible person, I would like to contribute towards energy saving ideas in order to conserve our ecological system. Furthermore, the total experience will make me more conscientious and will help me to propagate my ideas to others.

A recent professional or volunteer experience I've enjoyed:
While working prior to joining my MBA program, we had a pollution free month in our office. Most of us took either the bus to work or cycled. For me cycling is a wonderful exercise and even though I observed this month by cycling, I continued to cycle for the next 6 months until my office moved 20 miles away.
