I am an assistant professor of Theology at St. Mary’s University, where I teach courses in the Hebrew Bible and its reception.
I completed my Ph.D. in Judaism in Late Antiquity in the Program in Judaic Studies and the Department of Religious Studies at Yale University. I have an MA in Religion from Columbia University and a BA in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies from Brandeis University (summa cum laude).
My current book project looks at demonic discourse in the Babylonian Talmud in its legal, narrative, and socio-cultural contexts. My academic interests include the Talmud in its Sasanian context, rabbinic hermeneutics and jurisprudence, gender and sexuality, constructions of identity and authority in ancient Judaism, and demons, magic, and non-normative rituals.
