I am a current doctoral student working with Ward Blanton at the University of Kent. My main research interest is in Pauline conceptions of community, particularly in regards to the recent philosophical interest in Paul. Primarily, my work is concerned with re-thinking community in Paul using recent debates about conceptualizing community in ‘continental’ philosophy, while also balancing historical-critical Pauline constructions.

I teach various subjects at Kent and I also teach Popular Culture and Theology at Canterbury Christ Church University.
