I am currently working on a dissertation on 1 Peter, supervised by Dr. Ross Wagner. I'm picking up on recent work by Troy Martin and Alicia Myers, who argues that that letter uses maternal imagery to talk about Christ's work, and giving a thick social history of motherhood in the first century to unpack what work that image might be doing for the letter theologically. Much of my research combines literary and social historical methodologies to address ultimately theological questions.
