Current Occupation:

Assistant Professor, Art

University of Arizona School of Art

Division of Art & Visual Culture Education

My research interests include globalization and postcolonial issues, specifically disciplinary borderlands, and migrations ; social justice curricula ; and South Asian contemporary art and visual culture. Binding these avenues of research is a deep interest in how perceptions of culture and community are formed, internalized, and acted out within communities, through production and consumption of art and visual culture artifacts.

I serve on review boards of several national and international journals, and serve in administrative and leadership positions in professional organizations.

In my current position, I teach undergraduate and graduate (M.A, & Ph.D) courses at the University of Arizona, in Art Education, and the General Education program. Previous work experience includes teaching in K-12, higher education, community, and museum settings, and working as a freelance graphic designer and photographer.
