Fr. Robert Verrill

I am an English Dominican Friar who was ordained to the priesthood in 2012. I came to Baylor in 2016 after completing an MA in Philosophy at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, California. Before joining the Dominican Order, I studied mathematics at Cambridge in England and completed a doctorate. I then worked in industry as a systems/software engineer for several years. I joined the Dominicans in 2006, and completed a Sacred Theology Baccalaureate at Blackfriars, Oxford in 2012. I love the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas, and I’m particularly interested in trying to understand modern physics from a Thomistic perspective. In addition to my interests in philosophy, theology and theoretical physics, I also enjoy playing the trumpet and writing software. I created the search engine https://st-thomas-the-search-engine.op.org/ that allows one to do proximity word searches of Aquinas’ writings.
