Currently I am a Postdoc scholar and the Co-Director of the newly established Center for Contemporary Buddhist Studies at the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies, University of Copenhagen. I work as part of a collaborative research project on 'Buddhism, Business, and Believers in Asia and Beyond' with Trine Brox (PI). We have received funding from the Carlsberg Foundation and the Danish Research Council (FKK) for our project which extends to the year 2020. My individual research project is on spiritual tourism and the branding of Buddhism in Ladakh, India. I have a PhD in Anthropology from Aarhus University where, as part of a larger research project on ‘Buddhism and Modernity’, I wrote my PhD thesis "Young Buddhism: Examining Ladakhi Buddhist Youth Engagements with Migration, Modernity and Morality in India" which highlights the particularly prominent role that youth play in forwarding contemporary transformations of Buddhism.
