    I have a background in Bonaventure studies, having written on the interaction of aesthetics and anthropology in his soteriology, and how this speaks to contemporary anxieties surrounding the experience of bodily diminishment.

    My current work seeks to contextualize Mother Teresa of Calcutta within the history of Western spirituality and its sources. My research interests include the mystical elements of medieval theology (particularly theologies of the paschal mystery), early Franciscan thought and practice, spiritual poverty, virtue, embodiment and death, and theological interpretations of suffering.
