I am interested in the intersectionality of cultures in art, architecture and other modes, such as language and literature especially in the Hellenistic period. I am particularly drawn to South Asian and Classical cross-cultural exchange and syncretism in art and architecture as well as the function and reception of Classical art in the East.
