Since completing his dissertation in 2007, in which he explored the Trinitarian theological cosmology of the French theologian Louis Bouyer, he has continued to research the meeting of Trinitarian metaphysics, cosmology, and culture in modern theology. He has explored the interrelation of these themes in Bouyer, Hans Urs von Balthasar, and John Henry Newman, among others.

Since the time of his dissertation, he has had articles published or accepted for publication in The Heythrop Journal, Nova et Vetera, Communio, International Philosophical Quarterly, and Antiphon. He has contributed to the revised edition of The New Catholic Encyclopedia and to The Encyclopedia of Catholic Social Thought, Social Science, and Social Policy.
