Hailing from Hong Kong, Deborah Casewell completed her doctoral studies in Systematic Theology at the University of Edinburgh in 2015, writing on the theological and philosophical background and consequences of Eberhard Jüngel's theology of the cross. She has studied at Edinburgh, Oxford, Tübingen, and the Institut Catholique, Paris, working on continental philosophy of religion and modern German theology. She has taught in theology and philosophy of religion at the University of Edinburgh and prior to coming to Liverpool Hope University she was Teaching Fellow in Systematic and Philosophical Theology at King's College, London. 
She was an Executive Committee member for the Centre of Theology and Public Issues, based at the University of Edinburgh from 2009-2015. She has given talks on systematic theology, continental philosophy of religion, sociology of religion, and gender identity in mysticism. She works on the interrelation between philosophy and theology, both in contemporary thought and historically. Her future research is focused on modern theological and philosophical accounts of nothingness, exploring the grounds for a constructive theology of love, and the reasons for and consequences of the split between philosophy and theology.
