University of Florida, Center for Digital Humanities, Pune (India)


I am a graduate student and instructor at the University of Florida. My primary research lies at the intersection of postcolonial studies and digital humanities. At UF, I serve as a co-convener for the Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG), a group that meets monthly to discuss topics and projects in Digital Humanities. The DHWG is currently involved in organizing the first THATCamp in Gainesville.

I also work as a consultant for the Center for Digital Humanities, Pune (India). CDH Pune,one of the first DH centers in India, was founded to promote DH scholarship and pedagogy in India and create a networking hub for DH scholars and practitioners.

Please contact me if you are interested in collaborating with me on research projects, or building institutional networks.
