BA, MPhil, PhD

Research Fellow; Director of Studies in Theology, Religion and Philosophy of Religion
Affiliated lecturer, Faculty of Divinity


After receiving my Ph.D. in Divinity from Emmanuel College I spent the spring semester of 2016 teaching philosophical theology at the Institute for Literature, Intellectual History and Religion at the University of Gothenburg. In Michaelmas 2016 I returned to Emmanuel College as a research fellow to work on a metaphysics of nature. My published work is concerned with the poetics of 'writing nature' and I have a particular interest in the tradition of French spiritualist philosophy (Maine de Biran, Ravaisson, Bergson).
