Bio

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information. I work at the intersection of feminist media studies, feminist geography and platform studies. Using these three lenses and raising questions about the platform and its role in structuring intersectional feminist struggle,  my work highlights the important ways in which those who are also Black, brown, queer, trans and, or disabled, develop differential spatial strategies in moments of resistance. I hold a B.A. (hons) in English Literature and Political Science from the University of Guelph and an M.A. in Communication and New Media from McMaster University and a PhD from the University of Toronto.

My work has been published in Feminist Media Studies, ADA and First Monday.  I am also working with Sarah Sharma on an edited volume MsUnderstanding Media: A Feminist Medium is the Message, currently under contract with Duke University Press.

My research is guided by my own experience as a queer, Indian woman living in Toronto, Ontario.
