She was formerly a professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame where she served as the inaugural director of the Center for Theology, Science and Human Flourishing. Her research, writing, and teaching focus on constructive systematic theology informed by Roman Catholic contemporary and historical sources in its relationship with creation and the natural world as understood by the biological and human sciences.
