From 2015-2020, I will be leading a new project, funded by the Danish Research Council, to study the value of artifacts and the practice of ethnographic collection, Precious Relics: Materiality and Value in the Practice of Ethnographic Collection together with my colleagues Ton Otto and Ulrik Høj Johnsen. We will focus on Tibet, Papua New Guinea, and Afghanistan. Follow us at www.preciousrelics.org

 From 2017-2020, I will be a partner in a new project, Reconstructing Nepal: Politics and Practice After the 2015 Earthquake and Constitution, funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, lead by Sara Shneiderman at the University of British Columbia.

My previous projects studied material culture, music, political protests, migration, and the history and practice of Buddhism in Tibet and Nepal. I've published on Tibet's most important cultural patrimony, the Jowo Śākyamuni, historiography around the figure of the Chinese princess Wencheng Gongzhu, and Hindu conversion to Buddhism in Nepal among other things.
