I am a Senior Lecturer in History of Christianity at the Pacific Theological College in Suva, Fiji. Together with Shruti Dixit I coordinate the Network of Hinduism in Dialogue. I am also an Associate Editor with CrossCurrents.


My academic focus is on (inter)religious communication, both verbal and non-verbal. This includes the communication strategies of religious diplomacy, interreligious art, and creative formats for comparative theology. My training is in Religious Studies, Theology and Indology. I work particularly on Christianity, Hinduism and Jainism.


My doctoral thesis was published by Brill/Leiden in the series Currents of Encounter as Jain Approaches to Plurality: Identity as Dialogue. Currently I am working on a book on the involvement of the Vatican and the World Council of Churches in Hindu-Christian relations. This will be the main output from my DFG-funded research project at the University of Münster (2018-2023).


I also do creative writing, often on themes relating to my research.
