Dr. Dillon’s primary work is in the field of fundamental moral theology, with particular attention to virtue ethics and the relationship between subjective and objective approaches to actions and moral norms. She also does some work in the field of social ethics, particularly political theology and Catholic social thought.  She is currently working on an article that relies on the work of Herbert McCabe, O.P., to offer an integrated account of moral agency.
