My interests and ideas
I am currently a post-doctoral researcher with the Scripta Qumranica Electronica project, where I am preparing a digital edition of the large Samuel scroll from Qumran (4QSama). My research interests broadly encompass the field of Hebrew Bible and its social context. I have worked extensively in Northwest Semitic languages and Mesopotamian literature and culture, as well as the Hellenistic world and classical studies.
