Dr. Buxhoeveden received his JD in Law from Loyola University in 1984 and his Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from The University of Chicago in 1993. In 1995, he was awarded a McDonnell-Pew Foundation Fellowship to study Cognitive Science at the University California, San Diego. He is founder and director of the Religion and Science Initiative at the University of South Carolina.

Dr. Buxhoeveden is interested in the reiterative micro-organization of the cortex and how this can be applied to comparative neuroscience, medicine, and brain evolution. He has a particular interest in knowledge and its limits in science and theology, and how that affects the dialogue between the two.
