I have been teaching East Asian religions and cultures courses at Hawkeye since 2006. My areas of research interest include Daoism, Mahayana Buddhism, alchemy, shamanistic traditions, and religion in pop culture. I lead an Asian language-learning group at Hawkeye, and also serve as advisor for the Hawkeye Anime and Manga Club.
