Bio

After having completed my research master in Systematic theology and Philosophy of Religion at the University of Utrecht in 2008, I wrote for several media and published two books on the wholly unrelated topic of food. Since 2013, I work on my dissertation which will be finished in Fall 2019.  

In my research, I investigate  three noteworthy contemporary theologians (John Milbank, Stanley Hauerwas, and Nicholas Healy) who emphasize the role of practices as foundational to theological knowledge. I compare their praxis-based ecclesiologies with that of three early twentieth century Catholic theologians, Guardini, de Lubac, and Casel who in sometimes similar ways focused on the role of liturgy and community life in the establishment of a worldview, and used this relationship to engage modernity.

In addition to my current research, I teach at the Fontys Hogeschool Utrecht and write for newspaper Trouw.
