Marcus Bingenheimer 馬德偉 was born in Germany. He obtained an MA (Sinology) and Dr.phil (History of Religions) from Würzburg University and an MA (Communication Studies) from Nagoya University. Marcus currently works as Assistant Professor in the Department of Religion at Temple University, Philadelphia. From 2005 to 2011 he taught Buddhism and Digital Humanities at Dharma Drum Buddhist College 法鼓佛教學院, Taiwan, where he also supervised various projects concerning the digitization of Buddhist culture and was responsible for the Chinese Localization of TEI.
