I engage with empirical and philosophical questions concerning religions and education, values and moral education and cognate areas. I have used a variety of disciplinary approaches to interrogate long-standing and contemporary problems in these broad and contested fields. I am interested in fostering collaboration with scholars and practitioners working in similar areas of investigation and innovation, including prospective PhD candidates.
