About Me

Ph.D. Candidate, Theological Studies | Saint Louis University.

I study religion in late antiquity with particular focus on the literature of Syriac-speaking Christian communities. I am especially interested in interactions between Christianity and nascent Islam within the early caliphate. My dissertation explores identity formation and literary representation of Muslims in Christians narratives from the 7th-9th centuries CE.
