In addition to my research and my teaching, I seek to contribute meaningfully to scholarly conversations within my discipline and within the larger university community.

I am a member of the board for the Association for Jewish Studies, and co-chair the Unit on Traditions of the Late Antique East for the American Academy of Religion.  I also serve on the Steering Committees for the Society for Biblical Literature’s Unit on Racism, Pedagogy, and the Biblical Studies Classroom and the Association for Jewish Studies’ Paula Hyman Mentorship Program.

At St. Mary’s, I co-founded the Community for Teaching and Learning, a faculty-led initiative to foster conversations about pedagogy and better support teaching and learning on campus, and co-directed it for three years.
