Expertise

My areas of specialization are Thomas Aquinas, Reformed scholastic theology, contemporary philosophy of religion. Topics I am interested in are: doctrine of God (foreknowledge, predestination), creation and eschatology, and theological anthropology (human nature, sin, grace). When studying these topics, I try to integrate historical and systematic approaches.  I am a member of the Pontifical Academy Thomas Aquinas.
