University of Oxford
I teach Pali in the Faculty at all levels, and can tutor students for dissertations.
Current research interests include:
the collecting, interpretation and translation of Buddhist texts;
the roles of writing and orality in the formation of Buddhist scripture;
pre-reform meditation systems in the Theravada Buddhist world, and Buddhist meditation in general;
Mahayana scripture, especially the Samadhiraja Sutra (C2nd CE);
Buddhism in the contemporary world, including its transmission to the UK.
I have published in all these areas. I edit the journal Contemporary Buddhism.
