Inderpreet has a master’s degree in economics with a specialisation in international trade and is well versed with analytical platforms like SPSS and SAS.

Originally from India, Inderpreet relocated to Singapore in 2015 as she thought it would be nicer to count the capesizes while stuck in traffic.

When she’s not writing or tracking vessel movements, you can find her rolling through the town which offers plenty of food or revel in dancing to the beats of Bollywood songs.
