Biography

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

My PhD thesis, supported by SGSAH (via the AHRC), was a theological engagement with issues of truama and suffering in our increasingly non-religious social context. As part of my study, I undertook qualitative research (interviews and observation) with members of the Sunday Assembly in London and Edinburgh, exploring questions of belonging, community experiences, and responses to suffering.

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). 

Current Research

I am currently involved in a research project on the topic of feminism and trauma theology, which will culminate in an edited volume. More information here: https://feminismtraumatheologies.wordpress.com
