I am an Indian classical Odissi dance performer and Assistant Professor of Professional & Technical Communication at Dakota State University. My research interests mostly center at the intersections of cultural and digital rhetorics, and performance. My current research examines the use of technology as a tool of practicing and teaching performative cultural memory. This study helps us understand the relationship between traditional and online teaching, and the impact of mediation on pedagogic practices.

Hailing from the east Indian cultural hub, Calcutta, I received my BA in English from Presidency College (Calcutta University), and an MA in English (Post Colonial Literature) from Calcutta University.

While my artistic pursuits provides sustenance for my soul, my culinary explorations have helped me discover smells and tastes from cultures across the world.
