I am heading up the qualitative strand of the project for which Stephen Jones and Tom Kaden are conducting interviews and focus groups with scientists and members of the public in the UK and Canada.

My research is sociological in approach and framed by an overarching interest in religious-secular relations: how religious individuals and groups in Britain and beyond engage across boundaries, with those of other faiths, no faith, and especially in the public realm. This has translated into specific research interests in: Christian mission, interfaith dialogue, equality and religion and belief, science and religion, non-religion and secularity, faith-based organisations, and youth participation.
