Welcome to my website.
I am a Wudjula living with unceded Yalukit Willam country, and serving as Associate Professor of Theology at the University of Divinity, Australia, where I teach a variety of courses and supervise postgraduate students. I earned my PhD from the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
I have written a few books and articles. My research broadly engages questions in public theology, theology and the arts, death, and trauma. To address them, I enjoy collaborating with others in and beyond my discipline. I am currently writing monographs on P. T. Forsyth, and on a theology of trauma. I am also editing the T&T Clark Handbook of the Doctrine of Creation (Bloomsbury).
Among my many affections are cooking (especially Indian and Sri Lankan dishes), music, reading, visual arts, bushwalking, gardening, cycling, whisky, birds, cotton shirts, and loose-leaf teas. I have a strong preference for home-roasted coffee beans, and for second-hand clothing (my favourite pair of pyjamas once belonged to a very long-legged ‘Mr Ron Baker’). My golf game was much improved after reading John Updike’s essays ‘Walking Insomnia’ and ‘Lost Balls’. I am addicted to op shops.
