I am a PhD student and research fellow doing research on the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts of the Book of Jubilees. My main interest in the transmission and reception of Jewish and Christian texts, and the methods and theories that guide scholars in their research on these texts. I place my research within the paradigm of Material (or New) Philology.

I am also Programe director for the Ministry, Mission and Media (MMM) program. MMM is designed to give a basic but complete, theological education education in english, with a focus on ministry in the church, society and mission.
