where I'm at

I'm a postdoctoral research fellow in 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 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.

what I'm up to

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

November 2015 - publication of my edited volume, Desire, Faith, and the Darkness of God, by the University of Notre Dame Press

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