Education: MSt (Oxon), MSc (Imperial College), BSc (York)

Laura is a doctoral researcher at the Faculty of Divinity. She focuses on cross-cultural dialogue between the Abrahamic religions, with particular interests in patristics and mystical currents.

Before turning to the study of mystical theology, Laura worked in Mathematics and Finance.
