About

I am currently pursuing a PhD in the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto. I work mainly on Sanskrit intellectual history, specifically interrogating the literary modes by which religious thinkers of the dualist Vedānta (Dvaita) tradition in early modern South India responded to theological and social challenges. My other interests include the reception history of the Mahābhārata epic and hagiographical traditions in South India.
