She loves studying Scripture in its ancient context and showing students how the language and cultural context of Ancient Israel Hebrew language, Biblical Archaeology and Hebrew Prophets.  She is also currently working toward the publication of her dissertation, which focused on Hebrew inscriptions found in two Iron Age burial caves in Israel.
