He obtained his LLB degree from Nagpur University, India and became a member of the Bar Council of India in 2018. Then he worked as a lawyer in the fields of Intellectual Property Law, Technology Law and Data Privacy Law in New Delhi and Mumbai. He then moved to Brussels in order to pursue higher education through an Advanced Master’s Degree (LLM) in International and European Law with a specialisation in Data Privacy Law at the Institute for European Studies, VUB.
