Research

Research Interests

My research focuses on liturgy, ritual, narrative, suffering and reconciliation. Working in the area of Practical Theology I am interested in the empirical and theological reality of religious practices. Much of my work is focused on pastoral needs, especially the needs of marginalised people who are stigmatised and whose voices are not heard. A related interest is in autism. I am currently working on sacramentology and sacraments, and on the issue of taboo and stigma in public worship, especially in intercessory prayer. 

I welcome PhD students who wish to work in any of the above mentioned areas and in the broader field of Practical Theology.
