Meldrum Lecturer in Reformed Theology with specialisation in Systematic Theology
I am a systematic and historical theologian who works primarily between the Scottish and Dutch Reformed traditions.
I am a graduate of the Universities of Aberdeen (LLB Hons.), Glasgow (BTh Dist.) and Edinburgh (PhD).
Upon the completion of my PhD, I moved to the Netherlands to take up a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Theologische Universiteit Kampen (2010-2012). Following this I was appointed senior researcher in systematic and historical theology at the same university. In October 2013 I returned to New College as Meldrum Lecturer in Reformed Theology.
I have fairly broad interests in systematic and historical theology, particularly within the Reformed tradition. The bulk of my research thus far has focused on Dutch neo-Calvinism (Herman Bavinck, Abraham Kuyper et al), and the relationship of Reformed theology in its Scottish and Dutch guises. Alongside this, I maintain an interest in the relationship of theology to multilingualism.
My first book, Trinity and Organism (T&T Clark, 2012), explored Herman Bavinck's trinitarianism. I have published articles in the Journal of Reformed Theology, Dutch Crossing: Journal of Low Countries Studies, Calvin Theological Journal, The Kuyper Center Review, Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology, Theology in Scotland and La Revue Réformée.
