Her other recent work includes working on a maternal health study with the University of British Columbia, designing collaterals for Ghare Baire, the DAG Museum in the old currency building in Kolkata, presenting her paper ‘Shorshe Baata Ilish’, about the relationship between food and Indian history at the Spring School for Centre for Public History amongst others.


In the past she has been invited to perform at various literature festivals across the country like the Goa Arts and Literature Festival in 2016, the Tata Literature Festival in Mumbai in 2017, the Language Festival in Bengaluru in 2018 and the Women Empowerment-India Festival by the Goethe-Institute in 2018.
