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. I am currently working on sacramentology and sacraments, and on the issue of taboo in public worship, especially in intercessory prayer.
I regularly teach, contribute to, and/or coordinate the following courses:
What Does It Mean to be Human? (DR1045)
Sacred Rites and Worship (DR1071)
Spirituality, Health and Healing (DR302R, DR402R, ME33DR)
An Appetite for Food and Health (SX3012)
Preaching to change the world: Exploring the Theology and Practice of Christian Witness (DR503R)
Christian Practices (DR553M)
