I have a background in the historical and psychological study of religion. My research has focused on the psychological aspects of various religious traditions as well as the religious dimension of psychological systems. I am currently interested in comparative psychological issues in the history of religions.  My present teaching responsibilities include courses in the study of the World Religions, with an emphasis on the historical, philosophical and psychological aspects of those traditions.
