I am a Ph.D. candidate at Vanderbilt University studying religion with a focus on the thought and practice of early Christians, particularly the Christians of Roman North Africa. My current research explores the diversity of understandings of clerical office among western Christians in the fourth and fifth centuries.
I am also the HASTAC Scholar for the Vanderbilt Institute for Digital Learning (VIDL). A former Lilly Faculty Fellow in Theological Education, I am interested in the opportunities and challenges that online and digital learning present for theological education and for the study of religion more broadly. I am also interested in the use of digital technologies in classroom teaching - both in expanding my own repertoire of teaching tools and in exploring strategies for introducing colleagues to the use of digital technology in teaching.
