M.St. in Oriental Studies (specialising in Pali).
Areas of interest: Pali language, Buddhist ethics, meditation theory and practice.
Matthew is especially interested in the application of contemplative practice to non-religious settings in healthcare and wider society, and the convergence of Buddhist traditions with them. In addition, he is researching metaethical theories as they relate to Buddhism and Pali texts in particular. His principal focus, however, is currently the Pali language.
