I am an Associate Professor of Assyriology in the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near East of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where I teach Sumerian, Akkadian, and courses on the history and religion of ancient Mesopotamia. My research focuses on the temple rituals of the first millennium BCE, specifically Sumerian Emesal prayers, and on scholarly texts of the first millennium BCE, especially Akkadian commentaries. In addition, I lead the AMPS project, where I and my team will attempt to view the meeting points of the rituals and the scholarly texts as part of the Mesopotamian priestly scholasticism.
