Aashka Dave graduated from the University of Georgia with degrees in journalism and Romance languages, having studied participatory media platforms and their effects on community engagement and interaction. These interests led her to The Associated Press, where she worked on projects including digital marketing, book publishing and social media.
As a CMS student, Aashka works with the Writing, Rhetoric and Professional Communication research project. Her present interests lie at the nexus of media in transition, increasing applications of communications technologies and resulting changes in audience interpretation.
The Pottermore website once gave her a choice between Hufflepuff and Slytherin. Feeling affronted, she chose the latter.
