Collaborative Projects

In 2016, T. Ryan Byerly (University of Sheffield) and I were Co-PIs on a grant from the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion to host a workshop and engage in research on special divine action. In 2017 Joanna Leidenhag (University of St Andrews) and I collaborated on a research project on philosophical/theological anthropology. In 2017 I finished a collaborative writing project with R. Keith Loftin (Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) on God and personal identity over time. Currently, I am co-editing a special edition of the journal TheoLogica with David Anzalone and Ben Page. This special issue will focus on theological explorations on the philosophy of space and time. John Peckham and are the co-editors of a new book series on the doctrine of God with Cascade Publishing (the academic imprint of Wipf & Stock). This new book series will explore non-traditional and underdeveloped models of God, and will provide opportunities for new debates in philosophy of religion and theology click here for more details

In addition to this, the Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics at Edinburgh will be co-hosting a workshop with me on time and philosophy. This workshop will be co-organized with Dr. Joan Simon, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh, and Dr. Mehul Malik, Assistant Professor of Physics at the Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences at Herriot-Watt University. This workshop also gains support from the Society for the Philosophy of Time, and the Edinburgh Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities.
