In his words “I’ve come a long way from being an intern at Coca Cola, Hyderabad to publishing my research thesis on Sugar Extraction for biofuels from Sweet Sorghum funded by the USDA to working in the Consumer Products Industry focused in the nutritional space. My areas of interest are product innovation, renovation, brand portfolio optimization and prioritization through strong leadership and collaboration. The most rewarding aspect of my job is see our ideas come to life. I joined Protein Research in 2018 and the culture here is super collaborative- we all strive to learn from each other. One of the best things about working at Protein Research is that they recognize people should be aligned to their strengths. As a Product Development Supervisor, my role is very dynamic as a result I’m constantly learning as I work and make sure everyone can play to their strengths and do their best without major hurdles. I’m proud to be a part of a smart and talented team that is inspired, motivated and genuinely enjoys working on product development”
