Silvianne is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Faculty of Divinity. 

As a philosophical theologian, she works on pre-modern sources because she believes contemporary discourse can benefit from the best of their ideas. Her current research addresses the relationship between human beings and technology by attending to two fifteenth century thinkers: the German cardinal and polymath Nicholas of Cusa (1401–1464) and the Italian Renaissance philosopher Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494).

She joined Fitzwilliam as a Bye-Fellow in 2019, teaching undergraduates in theology, philosophy of religion and ethics.
