Welcome to my webpage. I am an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Whittier College. I teach a variety of survey courses (Religions of the West, of the East, New Religious Movements) and thematic courses (religion and the body, sound and religion, ritual studies, gender and religion) all of which assume that religion is a human institution that is inextricably connected to social, cultural, and historical contexts.

My specialization in graduate school was feminist ethics and theology but since teaching at Whittier I have integrated my interest in gender issues with broader socio-cultural analyses. My current scholarly interests include experiential classroom techniques in the Religious Studies classroom, and the role of religious studies in diversity education; I am also interested in single-sex households in the Maghreb.
