Sachin Tiwari is a policy researcher and data analyst. He has also worked as a high school teacher for three years, teaching sociology and economics curriculum of IGCSE Board and NIOS, India. His time at the school has convinced him that one creates the society that one aspires for, one day at a time, with young learners. This has driven him to continue working in academic research and high school teaching simultaneously.
He has a B.Sc in Biotechnology from Vellore Institute of Technology University, a Master’s degree in Development from Azim Premji University and a Master’s degree in Public Policy from National Law School of India University. This interdisciplinary training has enabled him to work at the intersection of science, technology and policy.
He is currently a Research Associate at the Institute of Public Policy, NLSIU, Bengaluru and MEL Consultant at Frankwater Projects, UK.
He spends his spare time running ultramarathons and cycling long distances. Endurance sports has been pivotal in shaping his work and life, in addition to bringing stories of human endeavour, perseverance, failure and success, in classroom.
