As an academic administrator, I have a background as a practicing lawyer and business owner. As an interdisciplinary scholar, I explore the history of Christian thought at the intersection of law, theology, and society. I am interested in how theology has shaped law, and how both of these have influenced societies.
My current research focuses on the puritan magistrates who founded New England. In particular, I am considering the ways in which puritan theology influenced the laws that were drafted and enforced in the colonies of Connecticut and New Haven. My future research will continue to study the relationship between theology and law, but will broaden to include other periods and regions of American history.
