Background

Summary

I am the technology analyst at Falcon Edge Capital focusing on long/short technology investments. My sectors include internet, software, enterprise IT and payment tech. Prior to Falcon Edge, I was the senior associate on the Internet research team at Sanford C. Bernstein in New York, working with Carlos Kirjner, covering Google, Amazon, Facebook, Netflix, eBay and Yahoo!. We built the team from scratch to one that was ranked # 2 by Institutional Investor Magazine. Prior to Bernstein, I completed my MBA at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, before which, I was a senior engineer at Qualcomm.
