I have degrees in Theology, Modern Hebrew and Judaic Studies from Lund University. In my doctoral theses I specialized within the field of the Hebrew Bible Exegesis focusing on central theological issues in the book of Isaiah as well as on the importance of this theology for the socio-political and religious life of the Israelites in the aftermath of the Babylonian exile in the 6th century B.C.E.

I have been teaching courses within the field of Biblical Exegesis but also teaching and coordinating interdisciplinary courses on the role of religion in contexts of violence as well as in contexts of peace building.

In my current project I study the history of interpretation of the Hebrew Bible narratives about Deborah and Huldah in Jewish and Christian sources between 300 B.C.E. and 300 C.E. with particular attention to the importance attached to the prophetesses in new cultural and religious contexts where Hebrew Bible was translated and reinterpreted.
