My research lies at the intersection of liturgical theology and theories of religious practice. I am interested in the history and theology of liturgical and sacramental practice, ecclesial practices and their relationship to ecclesial identity, and popular practices of piety and devotion. My current project constructs a theology of pilgrimage as sacramental ecclesial practice by bringing together discourses of Catholic sacramental theology, ethnographic and anthropologic descriptions of Christian pilgrimage practice, and the theories of Michel de Certeau. In addition to my scholarly research, I also serve as Managing Editor of Practical Matters journal and work as an Academic Advisor in Emory’s undergraduate College of Arts and Sciences. Prior to doctoral studies, I served as a lay minister in residential life and campus ministry at the University of Notre Dame. I received my BA in Communication Studies from Whitworth University in 2006 and my MDiv from the University of Notre Dame in 2010.
