I am a graduate student in the Faculty of Canon Law at KU Leuven. I graduated with a  Master of Theology at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in 2009.

My current area of research is mystical and apocalyptic themes in early Christian literature, though I also dabble in Patristic Theology, Hymnography, Systematic Theology, and Church History. I have a background in biblical studies, Coptic studies, Second Temple Judaism and literature, and the geography and culture of the biblical and early Christian world, and I try to integrate these into my current research.
