I'm incredibly proud to be a part of shaping the payment landscape of the future. I find myself thinking about the challenges of new fintech, payment solutions for unbanked individuals in developing economies and whether it is ethical or optimal.

I stand strongly for diversity, inclusion and equity - building an internal community is at the core of all the work I do.
