I studied theology at the Universities of Oxford, Edinburgh and then Oxford again, where I completed a D.Phil. on Ezekiel's ethics. From Oxford I moved to Cambridge in 1997, to work at Westcott House first as Tutor in Old Testament, then later as Senior Research Fellow in Biblical Studies. In addition to my teaching and research here in Durham, I am editor of Bloomsbury T&T Clark's monograph series the Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies (formerly the Journal for the Study of the OT Supplement Series).
