Personal profile

Research Interests

My research explores the life and literature of ancient Judaism and Christian origins. With a primary focus on the Dead Sea Scrolls, I map developments in scriptural text traditions in ancient scribal culture, patterns of interpretation in antiquity, and the evolution apocalyptic thought and writings. This research program encompasses writings across ancient canons and modern collections including the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, New Testament, Apocrypha, and Pseudepigrapha.

Teaching

My teaching and supervision interests include Dead Sea Scrolls, Hebrew Scriptures, Christian Origins, Apocalypticism, and Aramaic Language

Personal profile

As Associate Vice-President, Research, I support the Athabasca University research community in discovery, innovation, and impact, represent this cadre of research academics for external groups, and lead research strategy at Canada’s only open university. My own research program is guided by an interest in lost or forgotten worlds of antiquity as well as the creative design of research discoveries from that time into non-traditional formats. My research has been funded the Social Science and Humanities Research Council and the Canada Research Chairs program with select publications recognized by the Manfred Laughtenschaeger Award from the University of Heidelberg and David Noel Freedman Award from the Society of Biblical Literature. I am a past fellow of the fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany and present Associate Member of the Trinity College Dublin Centre for Biblical Studies.
