Personal profile

Personal information

I hold the University Research Chair for Theology & Science at the Faculty of Theology. As the name of my teaching appointment shows, my research is on the interface of religious faith and the (natural) sciences. As a systematic theologian I participate in debates on the relationship between science and religion. My current research focuses on two concrete themes: (1) the way in which evolutionary theory coheres with classical theistic (and especially Christian) beliefs; (2) theology: queen of the sciences? The nature and future of theology as an academic discipline.

Next to that, I am Head of the Department of Beliefs & Practices, spending ca. two days doing administration.
