PhD researcher in the fields of Popular Culture and Postcolonialism, University of Western Australia

I am currently pursuing my PhD on Intersections of Identity in Media Fandom Communities at UWA. My focus is both textual, examining fanfiction in particular, and on the community that produces it. I completed my MPhil from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi and then was awarded the IPRS to pursue my research further. I have recently co-authored a chapter in the collection "Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World" (ed Anne Jamison) on racial dynamics in media fandom.
