I'm a research fellow in the Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry at Australian Catholic University. I received a PhD in Religion from the University of Chicago and an MPhil in early Christian thought from Oxford University.

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.

In my free time I like to take pictures, and I also collect them.
