I work with philological material from the Ancient Near East, including texts in Hebrew, Ugaritic, Akkadian, Hittite, and Luwian. I have written articles on the Hebrew tense system, Northwest Semitic historical phonology and ancient Gnostic and Gnosticizing literature in its relation to motifs from the OT world. Recently, I have been working on early Indo-European (especially Anatolian) motifs in the world of the OT, which has led to the publication of my monograph "Unburning Fame: Horses, Dragons, Beings of Smoke, and Other Indo-European Motifs in Ugarit and the Hebrew Bible" (2017), as well as on a project on what philology and exegetics can teach us about communcating into the future about nuclear waste management.

In 2017, I was selected to be Pro Futura Scientia Fellow at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study, Uppsala, a multi-year position including research stays at SCAS and abroad.
