I'm an interdisciplinary researcher with interest and expertise bridging cognitive science, literature, and the other arts. I'm also trained in stress management and have facilitated, conducted, and consulted colleagues and sessions informing mental health and well-being and related advocacy. Over the past many years, I 've closely associated with organisations in India and England, such as schools and universities, charities, and health services. I have experience of working closely with a diverse workforce of practitioners interested and involved in addressing issues of well-being.
I also have experience of working with disadvantaged and at-risk communities.
I completed my MPhil in Cognitive Science (2011-2013) from Jadavpur University and was awarded the SYLFF fellowship (2012-2013) for research on constructions of identity and Cognitive Narratology, focusing on children and young people in the red-light areas of Kolkata.
I completed my PhD in English Literature at the University of Reading (2014-2018).
My areas of focus were visual thinking, graphic narratives, children and identity. I am presently an independent scholar.
