Dr. Conrad’s primary interest is in the field of political theory; specifically, exploring the compatibility of ancient and modern political theories with biblical principles. To that end, his research tends to be more qualitative than quantitative.
His secondary interest is in the area of technology. He has recently begun to examine the intersection between technology and politics to understand how technology either contributes to or detracts from the good political life.
