I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Theology and Ethics at the Pacific Theological College, in Suva, Fiji Island
Prior to coming to PTC, I worked for many years in central and local government in Aotearoa. As a student, I was very active in Student Christian Movement Aotearoa and am currently an Elder and lay preacher in the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. Immediately prior to coming to Fiji I worked as the Clerk of the Presbytery of Wellington in the PCANZ. I have previously worked for the General Assembly office of the PCANZ in social justice, administration, and communications roles. I studied for the PhD at New College, Edinburgh on a Council for World Mission scholarship, graduating in 2013.
I am a former International Fellow at the Kettering Foundation in Ohio (2003) and continue to be interested in deliberative democracy and the contribution of civil society to democracy. In 2019 I was on study leave at the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton participating in the Research Workshop on Religion & Violence. I teach across the fields of systematic theology and ecumenical ethics, with a special focus on Christian social ethics and political theology.
