He teaches a wide range of subjects across ethics, Christian doctrine, and philosophy, and teaches at graduate level for the University in both ethics and doctrine. Amongst his wide interests includes particular attention to the interplay of existentialism and Christianity, sexual ethics in relation to the identity of children, and the wider thought of Kierkegaard and Bonhoeffer. He welcomes applications for those wishing to be supervised at graduate level.
