I received my BA degrees from UW (separate degrees in South Asian Studies, Comparative Religion, & Asian Languages & Literature). I later received an MA and Ph.D. from UC Santa Barbara with a specialization in the religions of South Asia. I am grateful to return to the UW and contribute to the intellectual culture that sparked my interest in academic life and propelled me to the Ph.D. My teaching abilities span genres such as Religious Studies, South Asian Languages, History, and Comparative Literature. My teaching philosophy is anchored in authentic care for the enrichment of my students and being a partner in their learning process. I look forward to adding my skill-set to UW.
