Shreya Agarwal, HKS

Shreya is a Master of Public Administration candidate at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. She grew up in New Delhi, India where she completed an undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Delhi. After realizing that she wasn’t a Math enthusiast she thought she was, she decided to change track and did a Master of Development Studies from the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex. Prior to HKS, she worked with a policy think tank on India’s education policies and most recently with a non-profit organization called Digital Green. At Digital green she managed projects to disseminate agronomic and health based best practices to rural communities in India and Sub-Saharan Africa. During her first year at HKS, she focused on global food policy, finance, and business and government. This summer she worked with a development consultancy called Dalberg on a project with USAID and Government of India aimed at increasing financial inclusion through retail digitization in India. Shreya’s professional interests lie in designing and implementing large scale interventions in food security and nutrition. Outside of work, she enjoys reading, swimming, good food, going out dancing and dabbling in amateur painting.
