Prior to coming to UCL in 2010, I spent several years working for a start-up microfinance company in Northern India. I have just started as a PhD student investigating what pedagogic value is added by employing a digital ethnographic pedagogy as opposed to more traditional modes of teaching in formal educational settings. I will be working with secondary schools and FE colleges in London and the West Midlands.
I was a student in the MSc programme in 2010/11. My dissertation research focused on the creative process of digital storytelling through the theoretical framework of Alfred Gell's anthropology of art.
