Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer and Subject Lead for Religious Education in the School of Education.

I am exensively engaged in promoting inter-faith dialogue and have desined and led a dialogue project for Year 12 students in the London Borough of Merton, in association with the SACRE, called 'Our Faith, Our Belief.' This is running during the 2019-2020 academic year and will be extended in future years.

I completed a PhD in Systematic Theology at King's College London witht  the doctorate awarded on 1st May 2021. My thesis examined how a constructive dialogue between Christianity and atheism could be advanced.
