I came to the University of Austin in the Fall of 2013 after finishing my Master’s degree at Leiden University. I am focusing on perfecting my skills in Hebrew Bible, Semitic linguistics and philology, but maintain a keen interest in Old Testament Exegesis.
My thesis at Leiden was on linguistic and cultural contact in the Nabataean-Aramaic legal scrolls found at Naḥal Ḥever, and so in recent years my interest has veered towards the pre-Islamic Arabian Peninsula and the Dead Sea Region around the beginning of the Common Era. I continue to pursue classes and subjects related to this. Furthermore, I will be doing a portfolio in the field of Religious Studies to further broaden my degree.
