My work focuses on how to conceptualize, describe, and critique the contradictions of capitalism from a critical interdisciplinary perspective. I am particularly interested in the ways these contradictions condition this very pursuit. To do so, my current dissertation examines the material conditions underlying the phenomenon of addiction to critically analyze the ways coping with and resisting life under capitalism tend to reinforce capital itself. My other research interests sit at the intersection of Christian ethics, political theology, and practical theology. I also hold an MDiv from Candler School of Theology (2017). Prior to my arrival at Emory, I worked as the Program Director of The Exodus House, a non-profit recovery community in Anderson, IN, of which I am also the co-founder and a current board member.
