She has extensively written lyrics for popular Bengali songs composed by the Bangladeshi musician Arnob and still tries to write poems when the spirit moves her, which it does all too occasionally. She had spent quite a few years in Dhaka, Bangladesh teaching English at Brac University and is now based in London. She teaches Bengali Language and Literature at SOAS, University of London of which she is an alumna and a PhD Scholar in Ethnomusicology at King's College London, University of London.
