…Dr. phil., summa cum laude, History (University of Göttingen, 2016)

 …

As an historian, I focus my research on history of the humanities, especially theology, philology, and history. My work centres on cultural and intellectual life in 19th-century Germany, with special concentration on the Hebrew Bible and ancient Judaism. I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual European Fellow at the University of Cambridge and a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Queens’ College. During postgraduate study, I held posts and fellowships across North America and Europe, in departments of history, divinity, philosophy, and culture. After my time at Princeton Theological Seminary and the University of Chicago, I completed my doctorate at the University of Göttingen. While finishing my dissertation, I also held visiting fellowships at Ghent University, the Leibniz Institute of European History (Mainz), and the Max Weber Center for Advanced Cultural & Social Studies (Erfurt). In addition to Horizon 2020 of the European Commission, I have secured external funding from the Fulbright Program, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO), and the American Schools of Oriental Research.
