Areas of research

I have two major areas of research: 1) New religions and religious movements, 2) Religion among hunter-gatherers and other indigenous peoples. However, my work is always based on comparative methods which means that I, in effect, am dealing with a vast array of religions, past and present.


Please see my bibliography.

Teaching and supervision

My courses cover several aspects of the curriculum, mostly, however, disciplines of comparative religion. I offer supervision in (almost) all areas.
