Faculty of Divinity



I am interested in the ways that Christian doctrine relates to lived experience in the world, as well as theological anthropology more generally. My current doctoral research, supervised by Dr Simeon Zahl, focusses on the doctrine of sin, seeking to retrieve the theology of Martin Luther as a means to think deeply and constructively about the pathological in human behaviour and being.
My Mphil thesis looked at the nature and possibility of theological speech in Augustine's Confessions, and in particular studied his use of the parable of the prodigal son.
Alongside my studies, I am also a Deacon in the Church of England, serving a curacy at the Church of the Good Shepherd.
