My research interest is early Jewish–Christian relations.  I am particularly interested in exploring the interplay between Jewish and Christian exegesis, and in tracing the beginnings of mysticism.  I studied for my PhD through Manchester University.  My thesis has been published by OUP as Gregory of Nyssa’s Tabernacle Imagery in Its Jewish and Christian Contexts.  I am an Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Theology and Religion at the University of Birmingham.

I teach biblical studies and early mysticism not only at Queen's, but also for Woodbrooke Quaker Studies Centre, Birmingham  Church of England diocese and the Oxford University Department of Continuing Education.  I have previously taught biblical Hebrew at the University of Birmingham. 

I am an Accredited Lay Worker of the Church of England.  I have worked in a parish and as a university chaplain.  I am actively involved in Jewish–Christian dialogue, and am Chair of Birmingham Council of Christians and Jews.
