Biography

My teaching and research focuses on the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, as well as the use and impact of these texts down through the centuries. I am also interested in exploring how sacred texts are employed in the contemporary world, from iconic uses to the rise of digital culture.

I am actively involved in a number of professional organisations. I am a former president of the Irish Biblical Association (IBA), and am an active member of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), the Society for Old Testament Studies (SOTS), the Society for Comparative Research on Iconic and Performative Texts (SCRIPT), and the Irish Society for the Academic Study of Religion (ISASR).

I am also involved in postgraduate supervision, and would be happy to take any enquiries from prospective students. Current doctoral students are exploring both text-based and reception history-based projects.
