We would like to welcome Dr. Ana Cristina O. Lopes as our first Researcher in Residence. She is a cultural anthropologist who specializes in the globalization of Tibetan Buddhism. Ana is the author of Tibetan Buddhism in Diaspora: Cultural re-signification in practice and institutions (New York and London: Routledge, 2015), which explores the dynamics of the re-signification of Tibetan Buddhism in transnational settings. Her current research interests focus on the recent and revolutionary encounter between Buddhism and science.
