About me

I am a biblical scholar specialising in Hebrew Bible. My research speaks to the relationship of text, belief and community that formed the Hebrew Bible and continued in an iterative process far beyond it. I am particularly interested in inner-biblical allusion, literary motifs, biblical reception in art, and the books of Jonah and Ruth.

I am a lecturer at the University of Nottingham and also teach with the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies. I completed my PhD on the book of Jonah at the University of St Andrews, received a Masters degree with distinction in biblical studies at Durham University, and a first class MTheol (Hons) at St Andrews.
