I am a Lecturer in Religion and Theology at the University of Newcastle, Australia. My research has led to projects on the theological meaning of "being" after Karl Barth and Martin Heidegger and the aporias of transcendence in Jürgen Habermas' theory of secular reason. Examples of my work can be found in journals such as Modern Theology, New Blackfriars and Political Theology, as well as the recent book, Protestant Metaphysics after Karl Barth and Martin Heidegger. I also collaborate as Program Leader for the funded Religion in Political Life Research hosted in the Humanities Research Institute at the UoN.
In terms of teaching, I am the Program Convenor for Theology at the UoN (DipTh, BTh, GradCert, MTh). I teach undergraduate courses on World Religions (RELI1010), Religion in Film (RELI2030), Abrahamic Religions (RELI2050) and Religion in the Secular World (RELI3060).
