where I'm at

I'm currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry at the Australian Catholic University.

broadly speaking...

I work on classic Christian thought and contemporary continental philosophy. By attending to affinities between texts that are apparently distant in context and concern, I aim to open possibilities for productive conversation among disparate communities - within the academy and in the public sphere.

what I'm up to

March 2015 - publication of "Sexuality and Christian Tradition" in The Journal of Religious Ethics

October 2014 - presentation of "Foucault's Critique of Neoliberal Biopolitics" at the annual meeting of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy
