    My research agenda centres on the contemporary revival of Chinese Mahāyāna Buddhism, and includes cross-Straits comparative typological study of Buddhist institutions and monastic religious practices. My approach links theory, e.g., the Vinaya Piṭaka, with practice as observed via ethnographic fieldwork, with the aim of deepening our understanding of how Buddhist traditions are practised in modern society.
