Rikin Gandhi

  • Rikin Gandhi is a researcher in the Technology for Emerging Markets team at Microsoft Research India and chief executive officer of Digital Green.

    His interests include sustainable agriculture and technology for socioeconomic development. Gandhi received a master’s in aeronautical and astronautical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a bachelor’s in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).

    Prior to his days in rural India, Gandhi was a software engineer at Oracle and a pilot with ambitions for joining the astronaut program. Born and raised in the U.S., Gandhi “reverse-migrated” to India to help start a biodiesel venture on the wastelands of Maharashtra.

    Gandhi will soon be transitioning into a full-time leadership role at Digital Green. He looks forward to seeing organizations use the Digital Green system to improve the livelihoods of small-scale farmers across the developing world.
