Personal profile

Research interests

After having devoted most of my time to university management and administration for almost twenty years, most recently as Dean of Tilburg School of Catholic Theology, I am thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to focus once more on teaching and research.

Having been trained in analytical philosophy and having worked in an ecumenical context for 25 years, I am now applying my skills, knowledge and experience to issues in fundamental theology and dogmatics in my research. Moreover, I enjoy handing on my knowledge to a younger generation through teaching. 

Key words: ecclesiology, doctrine of God, prayer, evil, ecumenics, mariology, Apostles' Creed, Aquinas, CS Lewis
