Hi, I’m Priya. I was born in Bombay (now Mumbai) and have lived in many countries over the past years. I studied internationally in Germany, France, Norway and the UK to name a few but have called New York home since 2001. I have a Bachelors degree from Adelphi University in Communications (Film) and Philosophy (Theology) and a Masters from the New School in Media Studies / Media Education. My research focuses on skills based learning methods and the role of technology in the evolution of pedagogy.

I have been working in German-American higher education since 2010. I joined Hochschule Fresenius in January 2016 as the representative for North America. Before 2010, I worked in communications and advocacy for global not for profits including United Nations’ Childrens Fund and World Health Organization funded agencies.

I have worked in various roles / capacities and am happy to share my experience and connections with Hochschule Fresenius students today.
