Dominik Wujastyk is a professor in the Department of History and Classics and Singhmar Chair in Classical Indian Society and Polity.  His early training was in the Sanskrit, Pali and Prakrit languages, and his first research project was on formal rule conflicts in the generative Sanskrit grammar by Panini.  As a curator of Sanskrit and Prakrit Manuscripts at the Wellcome Library in London, he published widely on Indian codicology.  Later, as a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow at University College London, he taught and published in the history of medicine in India and South Asia, and this has remained an active research area.  Over the last five years, he has begun publishing research on the history of classical Yoga in India, and that has immediately connected with aspects of early Indian Buddhism, out of which Yoga arose.
