His most recent book is Sexual Crime, Religion and Masculinity in fin-de-siècle France: the Flamidien Affair (Palgrave 2018).  He has published in a range of journals, including French Historical Studies, the Journal of the History of Sexuality, Church History and the Journal of Religious History.

In 2012 he was awarded an Australian Research Council early career fellowship for a project entitled Secularism in nineteenth century America: a history. This project investigates the history of Church/State separation after the Revolutionary era, and the battles over the dividing line between religion and politics.
