Biography

I joined the school of Divinity, History and Philosophy in April 2018 as Christ’s College Fellow in Practical Theology. I gained my PhD from the University of Aberdeen in early 2018.

My PhD thesis, funded by SGSAH, was a theological engagement with issues of trauma and suffering in an increasingly non-religious UK social context. A monograph based on my PhD research, entitled The Sunday Assembly and Theologies of Suffering, will be published by Routledge in 2020.

I am also working on a co-edited volume, to be published by SCM Press in 2020, entitled Feminist Trauma Theologies: Body, Scripture and Church in Critical Perspective.

Research

Research Interests

Broadly, my research interests include: theology and disaster, responses to tragic events, trauma theology, secularity and unbelief, and feminist theology. I am also interested in qualitative research, particularly ethnography and IPA (Interpretive phenomenological analysis).
