Aardra Chandra Mouli

PhD Student
Office location
Level 38, 1 Canada Square


Aardra is a PhD student supervised by Prof. Davide Ravasi and Dr. Angela Aristidou-Ritter. She focuses on entrepreneurship and gender, and her research questions are centred around factors influencing decision-making and motivation. Her research interests stem from her entrepreneurial career as the founder of India’s first fully women-owned environmental biotech company. She holds a Masters in management from Warwick Business School, and a Bachelors in biotechnology and biochemical engineering from the University of Kerala.

In addition to her academic and professional interests, Aardra loves to dance, cook, read, and sing along (largely off-key) to a wide range of musical genres.
