I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Institut für neutestamentliche Textforschung (INTF) at the University of Münster, where my supervisor is Prof. Dr. Holger Strutwolf and my dissertation is on the textual history of Codex Bezae in the Gospel of Mark. My dissertation was awarded grants from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program and the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes. My main research area and the subject of this blog is the so-called “Western” text of the gospels and Acts as found in Codex Bezae and the early versions of the New Testament. I have a Master’s degree in Biblical Studies from Fuller Theological Seminary (2015) and also work as a professional software engineer. On the side, I enjoy hiking, camping, running, and music composition. I currently reside in Bellevue, Washington with my wife and four daughters.
