Revd. Dr David Wilkinson

David Wilkinson is Principal of St John’s College and part-time Lecturer in Theology and Science in the Department of Theology at the University of Durham, England. His background is research in theoretical astrophysics, where he gained a PhD in the study of star formation, the chemical evolution of galaxies and terrestrial mass extinctions. He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He also holds a PhD in Systematic Theology.

His current work at the University of Durham involves the relationship of the Christian faith to contemporary culture, from science to pop culture. In particular, he is working on the future of the physical Universe and Christian eschatology; Christian apologetics in a media dominated culture; and the public understanding of science and religion.
