Let us introduce you to our new Insights Leader.

Shishir web 1

Shishir graduated from the University of Oxford in 2011 with a BA in Physics and then went on to study for an MSc in Development Studies at the School of Oriental & African Studies here in London. He’s always looking to develop his academic understanding of complex, multi-dimensional topics and ideas, and is currently taking the ‘Economics with Justice’ course at the School of Economic Science.

Shishir joins us with more than just an impressive academic record. His last role was as a Researcher at Media Intelligence Partners, where he conducted quantitative analysis to compare the economic benefits of degrees and apprenticeships. He has also previously worked at Save the Children UK and Barnardo’s, and he passionately wants to contribute positively to society during his working life.

Shishir brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the K10 team and we are very much looking forward to sharing with our friends and partners the social impact we have over the next few months and years!
