Doctor Michelle Panchuk (Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Murray State University) works on such disparate fields as philosophy of religion, trauma theory, and feminist philosophy, although she has also worked on several other areas including the relationship of abstract objects to a God characterized by simplicity and aseity and, with Julie Swanstrom, the metaphysics of soul-splitting as articulated in the Harry Potter series.
