Current research

Hospitality in the Hebrew Bible.

Food and meals in the Biblical World.

In 2016, I spent 11 months at the University of Helsinki as a visiting researcher to participate in the project Ritual and Early Christianity. An international project working on ritual innovation and continuity in Early Christianity. My specific part of the project was an analysis of the tomb as communicative space.

From September 2013 to June 2014 I was on research leave at the Georg-August Universität in Göttingen Germany, where I am working on a project on Cult Criticism in the Hebrew Bible and in the ancient Mediterranean World. A comparative study of cult critical texts.
