Nandini Sen started her working life in the advertising industry, joining India's #1 advertising agency at the time, J. Walter Thompson, as a copywriter. After a few exciting years as a copywriter, she moved to the USA and joined Temple University in Philadelphia as a Master's student in Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media. She so enjoyed her coursework there that she stayed until she completed her Ph.D. in Communications in 2005.
While completing her Ph.D., Dr. Sen worked as an adjunct instructor at Elon University's Communications school in North Carolina. Her first job after obtaining her Ph.D. was as a Project Manager at the Sheps Center for Health Sciences Research at the University of North Carolina, where she developed an interest in public health policy while working on externally funded projects in the Mental Health division. From the Sheps Center, Dr. Sen moved to a CDC funded position in the North Carolina Division of Public Health. Managing large budgets as a Media and Interventions Specialist, she combined her experience in advertising and marketing with her experience in public health research to bring accuracy and accountability to health promotion efforts.
Dr. Sen has been an invited speaker for the Tri-State
Stroke Network and the North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative,
speaking on health campaign planning and health literacy. She has
published research articles on online communication, and presented
on stroke patients' psychological barriers
at the American Academy of Neurology annual meeting.
