Kimberly was appointed to the faculty at Notre Dame in 2013, and does research in sacramental and liturgical theology and ritual studies. Her current work explores how seeing the worship of the Church as human ritual can enhance an understanding of it as the work of God, and how the West can rediscover the Holy Spirit's work in order to develop a fully Trinitarian theology of sacrament. In addition, Kimberly is interested in Catholic and ecumenical Eucharistic theology, in ritual adaptation and identity transformation, and in the liturgy of the Syro-Malabar Rite Catholic Church, especially in the United States.
Kimberly is married and has three small children. She also writes for the liturgy blog PrayTell, hosted by Liturgical Press.
