Ravi works as a Senior Consultant for Communispace, where he investigates how people interact with services and products in real life and translates these insights into growth opportunities for businesses and service improvements for the government. On the side, he also works as an independent consultant in the areas of learning and development, organizational development, and group dynamics.

Before earning his MBA and becoming a consultant, Ravi spent 7 years working as an educator. Most notably, he worked as the Training Manager for City Year Boston (2010-2012). The primary focus of his work was to train 170 AmeriCorps volunteers for their work in urban public schools where they increase student persistence by tutoring in math and English, mentoring, offering classroom support, and assisting in school-wide behavioral and attendance initiatives. Before coming to City Year, Ravi spent fives years working in higher education, primarily in the areas of student leadership development, diversity, and civic engagement. Through this work he also helped with several university sustainability projects such as leading a student involvement committee as part of Lesley University's Sustainability Initiative and leading a study on decreasing student water use at the University of Connecticut. For fun, Ravi enjoys bicycle riding/repair, running, hiking, playing trumpet, and making poorly conceived art.
