|Director of Research
I arrived at Queen’s in August 2023 to take up the role of Director of Research. After studies in Oxford, Edinburgh, and Oxford again, I have worked in different areas of theology and theological education for my whole career. I was Old Testament Tutor at Westcott House in Cambridge for more than 15 years, and have also worked at Durham University and most recently the University of St Andrews, where I was involved in setting up the free and online St Andrews Encyclopaedia of Theology. I have also held visiting roles at Vidyajyoti College of Theology, New Delhi, the Ludwigs-Maximilians-Universität, Munich, and Brite Divinity School, Fort Worth.
My main research interests move between the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament in its ancient contexts and the later reception and interpretation of biblical texts. Particular areas of interest include the books of Ezekiel and Psalms, the Bible and warfare, vision and the visionary, and the Christian use of the Bible in liturgy, ethics and politics.
