He taught philosophy and Church history for two years in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and has been a visiting scholar at the Universidad Pontificia Comillas in Madrid, Spain. For the academic year 2021-2022, he is the holder of the Anna and Donald Waite Endowed Chair in Jesuit Education at Creighton University. An expert on St. Teresa of Avila, he specializes in 16th and 17th century spiritual theology and history, as well as the systematic theological issues of pneumatology and soteriology. His first book, Le lieu du salut: Une pneumatologie d’incarnation chez Thérèse d’Ávila, has been published in the prestigious series Cogitatio fidei by the Editions du Cerf, in Paris, and later translated in English under the title, Teresa of Avila, the Holy Spirit, and the Place of Salvation.
