I am excited to arrive here at CSUB after a cross-country road trip from New England. I will be teaching courses on Asian Religions in our Religious Studies program. I received my doctorate in Asian Religions from Cornell University and my Masters in Divinity from the University of Chicago. I specialize in the religious culture and history of Sri Lanka, where I have traveled extensively.
I have a new article coming out on Buddhist extremism, and my book project treats the spread of Buddhist communities across South and Southeast Asia. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with students and becoming an active member of the community here in Bakersfield.
