where I'm at

I'm a research fellow in the Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry at 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 mysticism and in Jacques Derrida's relation to religion. I also work on the topics of power and biopolitics, secularization, and the history of sexuality.

a few key pieces

July 2017 - "Derrida and the Danger of Religion" in The Journal of the American Academy of Religion

August 2016 - "Foucault, Gary Becker and the Critique of Neoliberalism" in Theory, Culture & Society

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