My research explores the role of the body in religion and the role of religious ideology and practice in producing knowledge about the body. My recent publications have examined the ways in which religious ideas and practices helped shape perceptions of old age in early and medieval Japan. I have also published on the intersections of religious and medical knowledge in premodern Japan. I teach courses on the history of Buddhism, Japanese religions, and religion and the body.
