I am Assistant Professor of New Testament and Migration at the Faculty of Religion and Theology of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In the faculty my role is threefold:
Within the research team of Contextual Biblical Interpretation, I am a researcher focusing on the dynamics between the New Testament, contextuality, migration, and textual criticism. Currently, I am also the secretary of the Amsterdam New Testament Colloquium, coordinating its biweekly seminars on topics in New Testament Studies, Early Christianity, and cognate fields.
At the Center for Theology of Migration, I serve as the coordinator and lecturer. The Center offers a one-year postgraduate program for migrant clergies, and it is also involved in scientific research exploring the multifaceted factors between migration and Christianity in the Netherlands.
I also function as the PhD candidate advisor at the Graduate School of the Faculty of Religion and Theology. I support PhD candidates as an independent point of contact and am available to discuss issues and progress of their PhD trajectory.
I welcome enquiries related to my research interests or concerning my role above.
