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...

My research addresses ethical and political questions in light of classic Christian thought and contemporary continental philosophy. I specialize in apophatic traditions of Christian thought and in Jacques Derrida's relation to religion. I also work on the topics of power and biopolitics, political theology, and the history of sexuality.

what I'm up to

June 2015 - presentation of "Religion and Politics in Hobbes and Derrida" at Décrire et réduire: en quête des phénomènes, a conference hosted by the Institut Catholique de Paris

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