About the Author
Paul Trafford lives in Oxford, where he works at the Museum of the History of Science. He holds postgraduate degrees in mathematics, computer science and the study of religion, and has spent most of his working life in higher education. His career has been mainly in the field of I.T., where he has created bespoke Web applications for language-learning and conducted research in e-learning and mobile technologies, including collaboration with Gakushuin University in Tokyo on teaching mathematics to business students. In the heritage and culture sector, he has developed Web interfaces to museum collection management systems, particularly for the Qatar Museums Authority, living in Doha between the summers of 2012 and 2014. Following a little in his mother’s footsteps as a ‘second-generation’ inter-faith worker, Paul has offered his services, mainly as a volunteer, in Buddhism and interfaith. He served as a member of the fundraising team for the University of Derby’s Multi Faith Centre, where he was also Buddhist Faith Advisor, and went on to act as a Trustee of the International Interfaith Centre in Oxford. With their help he has given presentations on the use of technology to support online communities, encouraged young people to explore interfaith, and shared reflections on aspects of palliative care. He is also a founding Director of the Dhammakaya International Society of the UK, which promotes meditation for inner peace as a means to world peace. Presently he is conducting interdisciplinary research in the application of Buddhist ethics to the design of social networking sites.
