I am a Program Director at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University. I earned my Ph.D. from the Department of Religion at Columbia University in 2018 and my master’s from Harvard University in 2009. My work and research—most recently—explores the relationship between religion, technology, and political economy, including issues of sustainability. I also specialize in non-western forms of Christian thought and practice. My work has appeared in Daedalus (Feb. 2023), Journal of ReligionReligion & Literature, and Harvard Divinity Bulletin, among other print and online publications. I have taught courses in ethics, religion, and philosophy at Mount Allison University, where I served as an Assistant Professor, and Columbia University, where I served as Mellon Interdisciplinary Fellow at the Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics (INCITE).
