About

I work in the School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh. My area is Religious Studies, and I work primarily on religious narrative in South and Southeast Asia, especially in the Buddhist and Jain traditions. On this blog I hope to share my research thoughts and activities, as well as some of the resources that I have created that may help others with an interest in this area. I will also comment on my experiences of being an academic in Scottish/UK Higher Education.
