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.

I am increasingly interested in the theological form that Catholic faith will take in an increasingly secularized public space, particularly in how that faith and its practices will be effectively communicated to post-post-Vatican II Catholics.
