She will be a Research Fellow for the Department of Indian and Tibetan Studies at the Asia-Africa Institute of the University of Hamburg. During her leave in the 2020-2021 academic year, she will be working on her second book, preparing an article for publication in a peer-reviewed religious studies journal, and developing courses on Material Religion and Medical Humanities.
