Presentation

Research interest: My research focuses on history of Judaean religion in Persian period (ca. 550-330 BCE). I’m particularly interested in the Judaean society in Elephantine in Upper Egypt. Moreover, currently I’ve started to focus on the Book of Lamentations. Previously, I’ve done research on Jewish scribal activity and scriptural hermeneutics in the formative period of the HB/OT (Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman periods, e.g. the so-called Melchizedek texts).

Teaching experience: I teach all courses that are related to the HB/OT and history of Jewish religion.

Network: I’m connected to the Oxford-based research project Communication, Language and Power in the Achaemenid Empire: The Correspondence of the Satrap Arshama. Moreover, I regularly contribute to the SBL group Literature and History of the Persian Period Group. I’m also an active member of the OTSEM network (http://otsem.blogs.uni-hamburg.de/). I'm also a member of the Norwegian Society for Old Testament Study (Norsk gammeltestamentlig selskap) og Collegium Judaicum.
