I am a former primary school teacher who stumbled into studying theology almost by accident, and now lecture in theology and philosophy in DCU. My main research interests are the religion/science controversies and the creation/evolution debate. My fascination with human origins has led me into the study of pre-human hominid species. I recently went on a field trip to Gorham’s Cave in Gibraltar, the last stand of Neanderthals before they went extinct. It was an amazing experience.
