Adjunct Professor


I am a life-long LCMS Lutheran with a passion for research science. Many people wrongly believe that science and religion are in conflict, but the fact is that the Author of Creation and the Author of the Bible is the same Holy God and cannot actually conflict. I have years of experience in private and academic research and additionally work as the Director of Research for Global Science Directive, a nonprofit corporation working on projects at the intersection of the private and academic worlds.
