As an intellectual historian, I focus my research on the history of the humanities in modern Europe, especially theology, philology, and history. My work thus far has centred on representations of the Hebrew Bible and ancient Judaism in the cultural and intellectual life of 19th-century Germany.
I am now a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Research Foundation–Flanders (FWO), based at Ghent University. Previously, I have been a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Cambridge, a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Queens’ College, Cambridge, and a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Göttingen.
During postgraduate work, I held posts and fellowships across North America and Europe, in departments of history, divinity, philosophy, and culture. After studies at Princeton Theological Seminary and the University of Chicago, I completed my doctorate at Göttingen. While finishing my dissertation, I also held visiting fellowships at the Leibniz Institute of European History (Mainz) and Max Weber Center for Advanced Studies (Erfurt).
In addition to the FWO, I have secured funding from the European Commission (Horizon2020), Fulbright Program, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and American Schools of Oriental Research.
