Postdoctoral Fellow, 2015-2017.

I earned a Ph.D. in Jewish-Christian Comparative Theology from Boston College in 2014, and was a Visiting Scholar of the Center for Christian-Jewish Learning from 2014-2015. I hold a M.T.S. from Boston University (2009), and a B.A. from Bard College (1998).

My current research is based on fieldwork in Jerusalem, exploring Christian-Jewish relations, and contemporary constructions of the idea of the Holy Land within Christian communities living in Jerusalem.

My previous research has been in the field of Jewish-Christian comparative religious studies and interreligious studies more generally defined. My recent book, Remembering the Future: The Experience of Time in Jewish and Christian Liturgy (Liturgical Press, 2015) traces how memory and anticipation shape the experience of time in Jewish and Christian liturgical performance.
