Research Title: Christian clerical formation as negation of the British secular  

Supervisor: Professor Joel Robbins


Prior to joining the Department of Anthropology at Cambridge, I completed my MSc in Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford with distinction (2018), and my BA in Cultural Anthropology at Eastern University in the United States (2015). My Masters thesis was an exploration of Mormon practical ethics and the enchantment of personhood through the doctrine of theosis. I have also been a research assistant on projects related to American evangelical ethics of missions, and testimonial experiences of Muslim-background converts to Christianity in Gaza.

Research Interests

My research interests include Christianity, religion, theology, secularism, education, knowledge production and dissemination, gender, ritual, and narrative.
