Giovanna Rampazzo graduated in 2017 from TU Dublin with a PhD thesis entitled “Formations of Indian Cinema in Dublin: A Participatory Researcher-Fan Ethnography”. Her thesis explored the emergent and globalising Bollywood film culture in Dublin, offering a timely analysis of the presence of Hindi cinema in the Irish capital in terms of consumption, circulation and production.

She currently works in the TU Dublin Graduate Research School office, where she looks after the module selection process for research students, assists the Head of the Graduate Research School in projects relating to the PhD programme, and is Secretary of the Research Programme Committee.

She received her BA in Film Studies from the University of Wolverhampton in 2007 and in 2009 was awarded an MPhil in Film Theory and History by Trinity College Dublin.
