About Me

Honorary Postdoctoral Associate at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. My dissertation was on 1 Timothy, “The Rhetorical Strategies of the First Chapter of 1 Timothy: The Relationship of the First Chapter to the Purpose of the Letter.” My research interests include women in the Roman Empire, the intellectual and cultural history of Roman Asia Minor, and Numismatics. I also have a BA (Macquarie University), Masters of Divinity (SMBC, Sydney) and a MA in Early Christian and Jewish Studies (Macquarie University).
