I’ve been invited to several panel discussions, including those by AVID Learning (Multipolis Mumbai: Women Writers and the City) and Paper Planes. You can also hear me as a guest on the IVM Podcast Not Just Dhansak With Bawi Bride.

I am interested in exploring the anthropology of Indian food and culture through a postcolonial prism, with a special focus on my community, the Parsis.
