Interim Chair, Physics

Professor, Philosophy


My research interests are divided into two main areas: (1) Dionysius the Areopagite, focusing on the interpretations of the Divine Names and Mystical Theology in terms of the Greek Patristic\Eastern Orthodox, Latin Scholastic, and Neoplatonic traditions; (2) Poverty and social marginalization, focusing on philosophical and theological approaches to these issues.


I regularly teach undergraduate courses in Philosophy of Human Nature, Theory of Ethics, and Metaphysics. At the graduate level, I most often teach the course, Plotinus and Early Christian Neoplatonism. In recent years, I’ve taught special topics courses in Dionysius the Areopagite, Greek Patristic/Byzantine Philosophy, and Needs and Human Welfare.


I am a priest of the Orthodox Church in America.
