I am a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Philosophy, Theology, and Religion at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Charlotte Hempel. My research focuses on compositional and thematic elements the War Scroll and related war texts from Qumran. I am also an Adjunct Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies at Azusa Pacific University, where I teach courses on biblical literature, Hebrew, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. My research spans areas of sectarian ideology, ritual theory, purity, and priesthood within the Qumran corpus and the wider landscape of Second Temple writings.
