Integrated PhD student in the Department of Theology and Religion  


In 2010 I graduated from Covenant College with a BA in Philosophy, and in 2017 I graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary with an MDiv. In 2017 I began the Integrated PhD in Theology and Religion at Durham. My MA thesis was on the Christology of Bultmann's Theologie des Neuen Testaments

The grateful recipient of a Durham Doctoral Studentship, I have the honour and joy of working under the supervision of Dr Jane Heath and Prof John Barclay as well as alongside a remarkable set of gifted and encouraging fellow PhD candidates.
