Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Previously I have studied the textual history of the Greek 1 Samuel (Septuagint), early reception of the Book of Revelation, and the Old Latin witnesses for the Books of Kings. Currently I am editing the Greek 2 Samuel for the Göttingen Septuagint project. The edition is expected to be ready by 2022.
I am the PI in the project "The Septuagint and Its Ancient Versions" 2019–2023.
