My research develops a localised perspective of the growth and expansion of Global Christianity. From anthropological and sociological perspectives I accentuate the heterogeneity and plurality of lived Christian experience in different contexts, thus bringing to focus the interface between culture, worldview and belief. I am also increasingly interested in the impact of globalisation and migration on religious belonging and the resulting changes on contemporary Christianity. Within the broad academic research on the hybridisation of religion, I particularly work on Christianity, with special interest in the social and political implications of Christian growth particularly in Asia and Africa.

PhD Supervision Interests

I welcome potential doctoral students in the following research areas: Christian Theology, Recent trends in World Christianity, Globalisation and Christianity, Contextual and Practical Theology, Issues of Immigration and Diaspora in Christianity, Christianity: Tradition and Transformations, Dalit Studies, Postcolonial Approaches in Biblical Hermeneutics and Theology, Liberation Theologies, Christianity and other Religions, Religion and Politics in South Asia, Anthropology of Christianity
