Dr. Priyanca Mathur is a political scientist by training and professor and researcher by profession. Born to a North Indian father and a West Indian Gujrati mother, she grew up in a multi-cultural and multilingual home in the East Indian city of Kolkata (then Calcutta), where she gained her undergraduate degree in Political Science at Jadavpur University.

The yearning for higher education made her leave home and go and live in the vibrant campus of the Jawaharlal Nehru University, in the North Indian capital city of New Delhi where she gained her Master’s, M.Phil and Ph.D degrees at the Centre for Political Studies and the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance there. A Commonwealth Scholarship also enabled her to spend a year at the University of Oxford, U.K. gathering a second Master’s degree.
