About Shikha

I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India in 2011. I started my career as an Analyst in the Global Analytics Delivery team at Deutsche Bank, modeling structured finance products.

After that I joined a fast paced b2b eCommerce startup in its five member leadership team at its early stage and fueled its growth until it became a fully grown company.

Then I relocated to New York and joined Impact Analytics, consulting startup, as an intern. I delivered inventory management analytics services to one of the fastest growing retail chains in US.

I enjoy analyzing metrics to bring forth actionable insights, while acquiring a better understanding of risk, theory and the tools that underlie optimization practices. I have completed courses in Machine Learning to enhance my knowledge and hone my analytical skills further.
