Prior to IIHS, Lubna worked with Economic & Political Weekly (EPW), Mumbai, as senior assistant editor, reviewing and editing submissions, writing editorials, and finalising the copy sent to the press. She worked on the development and implementation of the house style, the peer review process, and the article management system.
Lubna holds an MA in Interdisciplinary Humanities from Manipal Centre for Philosophy and Humanities, Manipal University. Her dissertation emerged from her interest in feminist philosophy to examine the conceptualisation and training of the body in classical dance, with a focus on Bharatanatyam and her experience of learning the dance form. Her interests also include publication and medical ethics, stemming from her association with the Forum for Medical Ethics Society, Mumbai.
