Biography, Education and Training


My research and teaching interests center on popular media, nationalism, globalization, feminism, postcolonial theory, cultural theory, and modalities of difference such as race, caste, and gender. My current book project focuses on the intertwined projects of Hindu nationalism and neoliberalism in India and their narration in popular culture.

I have a PhD in Communication from the University of Washington, Seattle and a Master's in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Minnesota.
