Personal Description:

I have a Postgraduate degree (Master of Arts) in Media and Cultural Studies and an undergraduate degree (Bachelor of Arts) in Sociology. I have been awarded a silver medal for both of the above degrees and have also received several awards for contribution to Arts and Culture and leadership. I have been a social science researcher and documentary filmmaker from 2012-2016.

I was awarded the University International Studentship to pursue my Ph.D. in Film at the University of Reading (2016-19). I am now based in Edinburgh as I complete my PhD. As a media professional I have been invited to conduct media workshops with children, adolescents and undergraduate students. I have also written and curated research content for online encyclopaedias and research projects alike, with a focus on sociology, anthropology and culture.

My tryst with filmmaking started with my debut documentary Accsex. This film, funded by the Public Service Broadcasting Trust and national channel (Doordarshan) was awarded a National Film Award by the President of India in 2014. I have also made two documentaries titled A Slice of Memory and Steeped and Stirred, which explore a variety of themes from to gender and culture to memory and culinary history. I have published research papers in prestigious peer-reviewed journals and presented my work at international conferences. My films have travelled across film festivals in India and abroad, been used for research and advocacy.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taken lectures and practical work on film sound and short film and also supervised documentary film work of undergraduate students at the University of Reading from January to June 2017.

Tutoring Approach:

I am interactive, creative and activity-based in my approach. I am open and fliexible to tailoring my tutoring to individual students' needs.
