Psychology of Religion

In 2007 I joined a research team at the University of Oxford, looking at the motivations and experiences of Catholics and Pagans on religious pilgrimages. A number of papers came out of this project, including Rise of Pilgrims on the Camino to Santiago: Sign of Change or Religious Revival? (2013)

In 2018 I started working with a team at the University of South Wales, looking at fluid spiritualities in a post-post-modern environment, and studying atheists who frequent spiritual spaces. We have a few papers in the works at the moment, so hopefully there will be some updates soon.

My research interests mainly focus on comparative psychology of religion, and on how Kierkegaard’s philosophy can be applied to non-Christian spiritualities.
