Dibya (or Dibs as some friends call him) is an accomplished scholar, educator, and administrator with over 10 years of experience working in multidisciplinary academic environments across USA, UK and India. He has a public facing publication profile with core research specializations in digital humanities and new media studies, critical cultural studies, and communication in scientific and professional contexts.

He espouses an inclusive critical pedagogy across undergraduate, graduate and executive education programmes that encourages critical thinking through extensive independent research, evidence analysis and contextual awareness. Dibya is also a founding member of the Digital Humanities Alliance for Research and Teaching Innovations (DHARTI), which in its earlier avatar was known as the Digital Humanities Alliance of India. He was fortunate (and deeply privileged) to be the co-organizer of the first Digital Humanities Conference in India in June 2018 and also facilitated the first DH Twitter Conference in India in January 2020 under the aegis of DHARTI.
