Her primary research interests address the question: What happens to self-identity when, through neuro-degenerative memory loss (such as Alzheimer's Disease), a person forgets God? She is using a historically and philosophically informed approach to develop a theological anthropology that dialogues with the sciences of the mind, in order to investigate the problem of memory loss and what it means to be a 'self' from individual, relational, and communal perspectives.
