  • Helping a multinational agribusiness to develop a go-to-market strategy to expand its penetration in India, Africa, and Southeast Asia
  • Developing a framework to assess a country’s readiness for cellphone-based digital finance
  • Working with a Caribbean country to design an economic-development strategy covering financial services, tourism, and other diversification opportunities
  • Supporting a transformation at a multilateral development bank to improve its organizational effectiveness, knowledge management, and leadership
  • Advising a range of institutional investors, development-finance institutions, and private-equity firms on their agricultural investment strategies and due diligence.

Outside her client work, Maya has led our internal knowledge-building initiative on global growth and investment opportunities in agriculture.

Earlier in her career, Maya worked at the African Development Bank and as a research assistant for the Mo Ibrahim Index of African Governance. She holds a master’s degree in international development from the John F. Kennedy School of Government and an AB in social studies from Harvard University.
