She regularly presents her work at conferences in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America and acts as consultant for television, radio, and publishers in the UK and overseas.

She directed the Leverhulme project 'South Asian Dance in Britain: Negotiating cultural identity through dance' (1998-2001) and was assistant director of the AHRB (Arts and Humanities Research Board) Centre for Cross-Cultural Music and Dance Performance (2002-2007), a collaboration between SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies, London University), UniS (University of Surrey Guildford) and Roehampton.
