So glad you could stop in. Come. Sit. Let’s Talk.  I write about food and how it morphs with immigrant journeys. Besides food, I write about science and women of color in science.

A Ms. Magazine Most Anticipated Books for the Rest of Us in 2022, and a 22 Most Anticipated Books in 2022 by South Asian Authors by Brown Girl Bookshelf, “Khabaar: An Immigrant Journey of Food, Memory and Family” is now available.

I also talk about my family, our immigrant journey, my childhood in New Delhi and my life as a woman in science in America. I talk about my family a lot. A. Lot.

Tell me your story. I’m here.
