Through my 15+ years at higher education institutions in Canada and Germany I have focused on research topics that intersect art, material culture, anthropology and beliefs—particularly within a contemporary Buddhist context.
My academic study of communities and art has in recent years led me deeper into community development in spaces that bridge art and technology, particularly in web3.
Here are a few examples of recent public discussions.
