She left a finance position of 4 years to come to Oxford. She had previously taken the part time course in Hindu Studies, run by the OCHS in London, out of interest. This course inspired her to further study and hence Oxford.
Her specific area of interest in Buddhism is related to the nature of Buddhist involvement in the conflict in Sri Lanka. One of the areas she hopes to explore, however, is the concept of God in the saguna and nirguna bhakti traditions.
