Biography: 

I discovered my interests in both religious studies and South Asian civilisation as an undergraduate at McGill in the Faculty of Religious Studies (B.A., Joint Honours). As a Commonwealth scholar, I then pursued postgraduate studies in Hindi language and literature (Banaras Hindu University, Adv. Diploma in Hindi) and in South Asian Religions (M.A., University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, Ph.D., Columbia University). Prior to joining McGill, I taught in India (Antioch College, Bodhgaya; SIT, Jaipur), and Singapore (National University of Singapore); my research languages are Hindi-Urdu and Sanskrit.
