About


I'm a PhD candidate in Hebrew Studies, Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Cambridge University. My dissertation applies computational linguistic and statistical methods to the debate over tense and aspect in the Biblical Hebrew verbal system. Specifically, I am using collocation analysis to find statistical patterns in combinations of classified time phrases and verb forms. For further work I am interested in formal signs of semantic function, using linguistic analysis in the exegetical study of the Hebrew Bible, and compositional analysis of the Hebrew Bible.

Projects

Researching Biblical Hebrew Syntax & Semantics


I use Text-Fabric to access the Hebrew syntax data of the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer (VU Amsterdam) and use Python to process and analyze the data.
