Personal profile


I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Ancient History. My doctorate, "Space, Emotion, and the Feminine 'Other' in Ezekiel 16," explores how space and emotion interact in the biblical text to characterise Jerusalem. My research interests include Late Antique Christianity, gender studies, cognitive linguistics, and the History of Emotions in the Hebrew Bible. 

In 2016 I was awarded a Master of Research from Macquarie University for my thesis "Cross-Dressers, Characterisation, and Castrated Men in Late Antique Hagiography". The thesis won the Patricia Geidans Prize for the best thesis in the Master of Research program in the broad area of Early Christian and Jewish studies. 

In 2017 I taught Hebrew A and Hebrew B at Macquarie University. In recognition of my teaching expertise I was awarded Fellow status by the Higher Education Academy in February 2018.
