I completed my doctorate in Hebrew Bible at the University of Oxford, before taking up an Assistant Professorship in Religion and Judaic Studies at Princeton University in Autumn 2017. In 2019 I returned to Oxford, where I am currently Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible and Tutorial Fellow in Theology and Religion at Worcester College.
Old Testament/Hebrew Bible
My work is situated at the intersection of Biblical Studies, Assyriology, and Classics. I am interested in the composition of biblical literature in the wider context of the ancient Near East, with an emphasis on the production, consumption, and transformation of sacred texts by religious communities.
Research interests include: Hebrew Bible and its history of interpretation, the comparative method, material culture, embodiment, notions of the self in antiquity, philology, and scribal culture. I am currently researching dress, adornment, and the body in the ancient Eastern Mediterranean.
