The major theme in my scholarship is the investigation of Buddhism's role in the intercultural exchange of ideas about the body, disease, and healing. I am interested in looking at historical and contemporary Buddhist medicine through a crosscultural lens, emphasizing both the transmission and local reception of knowledge. I am also fascinated by the theoretical issues raised by the interdisciplinary study of the intersection between religion, medicine, and the body more generally.
