Expertise

Since September 2019, the KSGV has appointed me as a professor for sociology of religion and public mental health. I study the institutional dynamics of spiritual care and mental health care, and the, often implicit, role of religion and worldviews in societal developments.

I  teach at the department of practical theology and religious studies, and participate in the research program on the transformation of Catholicism in late modernity.
