Research Associate in Asian Studies

Sree Padma’s foundational training is in both the modern history and archaeology of India. As such, her research interests are interdisciplinary as she draws on primary resources from archaeology, art, literature, archives, and ethnography. Sree Padma’s publications consisting of 5 books, 27 articles, and 36 papers presented in national and international conferences reflect her diverse research interests both in India and more recently in Sri Lanka. Her current research on indigenous medicine practices in Sri Lanka with a focus on parampara (hereditary) physicians and their use of herbs, adds yet another tone to her research.
