About Me

I received my M.A. in archaeology of the roman provinces, pre- and early history, egyptology and classical archaeology at the University of Mainz, and my PhD in ancient history at the University of Erfurt. I worked as a postdoc for three years at the department of Egyptology at the University of Heidelberg. In November 2016 I received a three year grant for my research about ancient magical signs, the project will be located at the University of Erfurt (Germany).

Currently I am working on the following projects:

  • The Handbook and Analysis of Ancient Ritual Signs Project, funded by the German Research Foundation,
  • A complete re-edition of the bilingual Demotic-Greek „magical“ instruction manual P. London BM 10070 / P. Leiden I 383 (PGM XIV, pdm xiv, 2nd/3rd cent. CE),
  • The impact of writing system parameters on cultural and religious identiy, inspired by a set of hypotheses published by the neuroscientis Detlef B. Linke.
