He attended Amherst College and in 1999 received his PhD in Sanskrit and Tibetan studies from Harvard University. Before being appointed in his current position, John was a professor at Emory University, where he helped to establish the Collaborative for Contemplative Studies (now the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics). He also previously held research positions at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, and the Central University of Higher Tibetan Studies in Sarnath, India. He is a fellow and former member of the Board of the Mind and Life Institute. His academic work includes teaching and advising for the Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Kathmandu, Nepal. He frequently serves as a translator for Tibetan scholars, and as a consultant, he is involved in various scientific studies of contemplative practices.

Reviews

"John Dunne and Daniel Goleman have assembled a set of refreshingly new and vibrant conversations between scientists, ethicists, and spiritual leaders on core climate change issues. The reader feels invited to a Jeffersonian dinner-table conversation, engaging with approachable, knowledgeable experts who elevate the human, ethical, social, and personal dimensions that are often lost in more technical works. His Holiness the Dalai Lama regularly punctuates the conversation with penetrating yet disarmingly simple observations that draw focus to the real human and spiritual dimensions of a world in transition."

--Peter B. de Menocal, dean of science, Columbia University
