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.
