Academic interests

In my research I am mainly interested in literary texts from late antique Egypt, written in the country’s native language, Coptic. Of particular interest to me is the emergence and formation of a specifically ‘Coptic’ literature in this period and its development over time. A secondary interest is Coptic angelology and the reception of angelic figures in Coptic literary texts.

I am currently a member of the ERC-funded APOCRYPHA project, which focuses on Coptic apocrypha.

Background

  • From 2010 to 2012 I studied History and History of Arts, from 2012 to 2017 History and Egyptology at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster, Germany. From 2017 to 2020 I studied Coptology at the same university.
  • Between 2018 and 2020 I have worked as a tutor, teaching Coptic to undergraduate students.
