My academic interests lie in the domains of popular culture, graphic narrative, feminisms, adaptation, mythology and fairy tales. 


I also write film and book reviews for various popular online websites.

I have worked for a year in school publishing at Macmillan Publishers, and one year as a Guest Lecturer at Hindu College, Sri Venkateswara College and the Department of Germanic & Romance Studies at University of Delhi.
