PhD Marquette University
Having spent a number of years in ministry in a variety of settings, I am delighted to be teaching at IPS working with students who are preparing for various types of ministry in parishes, non-profit organizations, healthcare, retreat centers, etc. Theology comes alive when it informs and is informed by our everyday life experience.
My areas of research include Christian anthropology, Christology, Trinitarian theology, and a special interest in the relationship between science and theology, specifically in the fields of neuroscience and quantum physics.
