I am a teacher and scholar trained in Catholic theological ethics. I teach undergraduate courses at the University of San Diego as a professor of theology and religious studies. My research explores themes in fundamental moral theology, including the role of experience in theological method, as well as topics that probe the relationship between social justice and sexuality, including HIV-prevention, birth control, gender justice in marriage, and reproductive justice.
