Michelle Marvin is a Ph.D. candidate in Systematic Theology and the History & Philosophy of Science at the University of Notre Dame. Her dissertation research brings together the theological anthropology of Edward Schillebeeckx with the neuroscience of memory loss, focusing on the impact that Alzheimer's disease has on individual faith and Christian self-identity. Her work employs a hermeneutic approach to the multivalent concept of memory in order to set contemporary theological anthropology in dialogue with the mind sciences. Beyond this work, Michelle's academic and teaching interests further include ecological theology (ecotheology), creation theology, virtue theory, and bioethics. Michelle is also a Graduate Tutor in the University Writing Center and teaches Foundations of Theology in the Theology Department.
