Frequently asked questions

This page compiles some of the most-asked questions I get. These include questions from students as well as inquiries about working in Indian philosophy and Sanskrit. I'll update this page from time to time.

If you want to talk more, I hold office hours by appointment using Youcanbook.me. My office is located in Elm College, RC02-02-04D. Any student can make an appointment--you do not need to be in one of my classes currently.

If you want me to write you a letter of recommendation, visit this page.
