Martin Poulsom is Head of Theology at Heythrop College, University of London, where he has been lecturing in Systematic Theology since 2006. His areas of specialism include the doctrine of creation and the theology of Edward Schillebeeckx. His first major book, published in 2014, is entitled The Dialectics of Creation, and combines these two research interests.
He is a member of the Salesians of Don Bosco, a Roman Catholic religious congregation that specialises in youth work. As a Salesian (since 1987), he has lived in various places in England and Ireland and has experience of running residential retreats, youth work, leadership training for youth ministers, parish and ecumenical work, and various forms of music ministry. He has been a presbyter since 1997. He is a member of the Youth Ministry network of the Salesian Province, focussing particularly on young adult work and advocacy in the area of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation. He lives in the Salesian community in Battersea, from which he usually walks to work.
Martin represents Green Christian on the Board.
