Matthew is a PhD student in the Divinity Faculty at the University of Cambridge. His thesis considers the implications of evolutionary theory for the Christian understanding of the soul and its creation. Alongside his studies, he is an associate lecturer at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, and the director of a discipleship and church internship programme that serves the Newfrontiers network across Europe. Matthew didn’t grow up as a Christian and had very little interest in science until his conversion during university. He hadn’t expected that becoming a believer would spark a personal intellectual revolution. But it did, and since then, he has been known to get very excited about general relativity, mycorrhizal networks, and cultural evolution. Matthew is a passionate believer that modern science can open theological questions and dialogue with people rather than shut it down.
