His areas of research include intellectual history, eastern Christian literature of late antiquity (Greek, Syriac, Coptic, Armenian), asceticism, and ancient philosophy & medicine.

He is currently a Junior Fellow in Byzantine Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in Washington, DC.

He holds a M.T.S. in the History of Christianity from the University of Notre Dame and a B.A. in Philosophy and Religious Studies from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he was a Morehead-Cain Scholar.
