Subject Area and Specialization
My interest lies in biblical theology, with an emphasis on exegetical studies in both the Old and New Testament. My provisional field of study is in the concept of perceived insignificance and powerlessness in the Gospel of Matthew, together with sociological, intertestamental and exegetical studies of biblical sources and comparative studies with extra-biblical sources.

- Sociological and Ethical Approaches to the New Testament
- Intertextuality of the Old and New Testament
- Intersection of Qumran Studies and Gnosticism with New Testament Studies
