Personal statement

I am a South Asian immigrant by way of the UK to Canada. As an Anglican priest I want to root my work in the parish and the academy. Theology is for the church! I’m very committed to decolonizing the academy and the church. As part of my academic work, I have co-edited a book entitled Reading In-between: How Minoritized Cultural Communities Interpret the Bible in Canada. I am interested in a wholistic, sacramental spiritual development that unites contemplation and action. We exist to “repair the world” (tikkun olam). My pronouns are she/her.
