I am a translation theorist, philosopher and teacher. I write on: Ethics, Political Philosophy, the Philosophy of Thought, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Religion and Asian Philosophy---especially Indian Philosophy. A theme of my research is the connection between abstract models of thought and understanding, and outcomes of imperialism, nationalism, anthropocentrism and other moral and political phenomena.

I am author of two peer reviewed monographs, two edited volumes, a translation and commentary of an ancient text of moral theory from Sanskrit, and several papers spanning my areas of research.
