Research interests

My main research interest is the history and development of Indian Buddhist thought in the Nikāyas/Āgamas and Pali and Sanskrit exegetical sources relating to the Abhidharma. I am currently working on two main projects: a series of studies of aspects of the theories of Indian Buddhist meditation, and a book on Abhidharma thought provisionally titled "Buddhist maps of the mind and body: a study of Buddhist thought in the Theravāda, Sarvāstivāda and Yogācāra Abhidharma".


At undergraduate level I teach courses relating to Buddhism, Hinduism and Indian Philosophy: Foundations of Buddhist Thought and Practice, Divine Love in Hinduism, Indian Philosophy, Yoga and Meditation, Buddhist Psychology and Mental Health.
