Current Research Interests

I am a systematic theologian, which means that my thinking about God leads me to think about what it means to be human in this world, and vice-versa.  In particular, I am interested in the ways in which Catholic theology and Roman Catholic ecclesial practice and feminist thought have supported, undermined and critiqued one another, so I move between trinitarian theology, theological anthropology, and ecclesiology.
