Personal profile

Research interests

My research interest is guided by the question: how are Christian traditions transformed and continued in ecclesial contexts, in secular spheres and on the boundaries between the religious and the secular?

Currently, I am working on four projects:

1) The development of fluid ways of being church.

2) The organizational dynamics of chaplaincy and mental health care.

3) The construction of Catholic Social Teaching and its contribution to and critique of capitalism.

4) The use of religious heritage in popular culture, in particular comics and events.
