I work on topics in the philosophy of religion, political theology, and philosophical theology, particularly at the intersection of Mennonite studies and Continental philosophy. My proposed dissertation will focus on the question of ontological and epistemological violence in the postsecular context.

Supervisor: Dr. P. Travis Kroeker
