Biographical details

I began a degree in the areas of Hebrew and Biblical Studies at the University of Sydney in 1980. In the course of my studies, I gained familiarity not only with classical Hebrew, but also with Aramaic, Syriac, Ugaritic, and Arabic. From 1987 I worked with Dr Bill Jobling, with research involving time in Jordan, particularly in the Aqaba-Maan area, looking at Thamudic and Nabataean inscriptions. I have done research in England and in Israel, and have taught in both the Biblical Studies and Hebrew programs since 1997. My major interest lies in the Ugaritic texts, particularly the role of the goddess figures.
