Research and professional interests

My interest in Biblical studies has been in the area of Biblical Archaeology and Biblical Backgrounds. For five years I worked with Joseph Callaway as a research assistant on the Ai-Raddana excavation project materials. My doctoral dissertation focused on an archaeological study of incense stands and small altars from the period of the Judges. Because of this interest, most of my writing and research (approximately 55 articles and a book entitled Cities of the Bible: An introduction to the Archaeology, Geography and History of Biblical Sites) are related to the study of Biblical Archaeology and Biblical Backgrounds.
