Assistant Professor of Early Christianity
Department of Theological Studies
Saint Louis University
My work focuses on Literature and Theology in the Late Ancient Christian East (Greek, Syriac, Armenian). Before coming to SLU, I spent a fellowship year (2011-12) at Harvard University's Dumbarton Oaks Research Library working on my dissertation (entitled "Out of Books, A World: The Scriptural Poetics of Ephrem's Hymns on Faith"). I defended this dissertation at the University of Notre Dame in March, 2013. I have an English translation of the Hymns on Faith forthcoming with Catholic University of America Press (Fathers of the Church series).
