I am a Senior Lecturer in Media and Communication Studies at the Faculty of Social Studies and Humanities of the University of Mauritius. My areas of interest include cultural studies, film theory, journalism and new media inter alia.

I would like more of us to engage in citizen journalism as well as become more vocal on what is happening around us.

I am married to Avinash and we have two kids: Anya and Kyan.
