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 the Dalai Lama's legacy and impact on various communities.

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.
