He works with manuscript as well as epigraphic and material sources, and has performed several months of field work, surveying Digambara ascetics’ funerary monuments and visiting Digambara temples throughout the region. In 2022, he worked on the CERES CRC Metaphors of Religion, subproject ‘The Human Body as Metaphor of the Divine: Anthropomorphism in South Asian Religious Traditions’. His further interests include Jain ritual, Theravādā meditation, South Asian, narrative, ritual, and meditative practices as technologies of the self, and the entanglement of practices of emancipation and subjugation.
