Hi! I'm Surya, a current Master's student at Johns Hopkins studying Applied Economics.

I love to play the piano, work out, box, and create music in my free time!

Understanding COVID's Impact on the Adoption of FinTech

How has the pandemic affected the growth and adoption of fintech solutions in different regions around the world? What are some of the challenges and opportunities that fintech companies have faced as a result of the pandemic, such as changes in consumer behavior or shifts in market demand? These are the types of questions we'll be seeking to answer through this project.
