Being on timeDislikes
Prerna does a little bit of everything. She likes data, research, and believes fieldwork builds character. She believes in the idea of independent, non-partisan research and hence our for-profit business model.
She has worked on over 60 evaluations spanning different sectors and has led Outline in its quest to 24 states, over 4000 villages in a span of 5 years.
She is currently focusing on developing TYM - the 'Track your metrics' platform and app– a concurrent assessment tool that will automate social audits and change the way we look at accountability across the developing world.
She is a 2018 Chevening fellow at Oxford University, a 2017 Raisina Fellow (awarded by the Ministry of External Affairs and ORF) and a 2016 Australia India Youth Dialogue Fellow. She was part of the prestigious 40 under 40 list released by Fortune magazine in 2017 and in 2018 for Outline India’s disruptive work with data.
She has previously worked at Centre for Policy Research and as an RA at Harvard University and briefly at NBER (National Bureau of Economic Research).
She holds a Masters degree in Economics from Boston University.
