Ankush Banerjee

Consultant

Ankush Banerjee is an award-winning (read: his editor has occasionally attached “well written!” to his articles) writer and journalist for Business Insider India, covering a variety of beats that stretches from science and sustainability and all the way to politics. His degrees in engineering and journalism help quite a bit with day-to-day writing. When he isn’t rabbit-holing himself into unnecessarily extensive research for a random topic he has just learned of, he spends his time annoying his friends with weaponised bits of trivia from the aforementioned topic. Do also stay wary if you find him in the middle of a rant about the state of tea, momos, infrastructure and politics in our country.
