He pronounced perpetual vows as a Jesuit in 2011 and began two years of philosophy studies at Regis College, Toronto. From 2013 to 2015 he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Experimental Cosmology Group at the University of British Columbia, where he worked on the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) and ACT. He will begin theology studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome in the autumn of 2015.
