Mani is an aspiring data scientist with a background of three years of professional experience in business intelligence and data-analytics. She received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and master’s degree in chemistry from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani in 2013.
Shortly after graduation, she joined a global management-consulting firm ZS Associates as a business technology analyst.
