I received my B.A. in Molecular Biology from Princeton (2009), M.St. in Theology with a focus on Religion and Science from Oxford (2010), and I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Columbia University's Religion Department. As a scholar of North American Religions, my research and teaching center on the relationship among gender, Judaism and science in the contemporary United States. My dissertation, "Prophetesses of the Body: American Jewish Feminism and The Politics of Embodied Knowledge," traces how women's bodies engage structures of power and produce opportunities for change within American Jewish communal life. Melding institutional archives, ethnographic observation, and Jewish texts, my project casts light not only on contemporary American Jewry, but also on the negotiations among religion, science and secularism in contemporary America.
