My research is focused on two main areas: Buddhism among Tibetans and Nepalis, and the development of Nepal. For the former, I have published on material culture, gender, music, and politics. For the latter, I have investigated migration and post-earthquake reconstruction of houses and heritage sites. 

Two recent representative publications are: 

Impermanence: exploring continuous change across cultures, UCL Press (2022) https://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/id/eprint/10144167/1/Impermanence.pdf

Shneiderman, Sara, et al. 2021. "Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction: Law, Construction and Finance as Domains of Social Transformation." In Epicentre to Aftermath: : Rebuilding and remembering in the wake of Nepal’s earthquakes, edited by Michael Hutt, Mark Liechty and Stefanie Lotter, 30 pp. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

My current projects include: an investigation of gender and family dynamics in Tibetan migration to France, and preparations for the future passing of the 14th Dalai Lama and the selection of his successor.

My research has been supported by: the Danish Council for Independent Research-Humanities, the Danish International Development Agency, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Fulbright Commission, and Harvard University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. 

When I am not studying the Himalayas, I am either running or playing games. I'm fascinated by the way human sociality reproduces itself in the player/fan communities of particularly challenging games or demanding sports. I would really enjoy joining a research project along those lines.
