Hello, Bonjour, Namaste

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Transcultural Studies at the University of Calgary. Through my dissertation, I examine the transnational turn in India’s independent film production culture over the past decade. ​​​​I particularly analyze the larger institutional processes and production practices of Indian creative producers that are transforming India’s independent film culture and making it more transnational.

I also worked as a producer to amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour through film and tv projects in Alberta.


My research interests are interdisciplinary:

film festival studies, transnational cinema, American and Indian indie cinema, media industries and production studies.

A wider spectrum of my research interests includes:

postcolonial studies, feminism, media labor, cultural policy studies, anthropology, ethnography literary theory and film theory.
