I earned my PhD in Semitic Languages at Uppsala Univ. in 2015. My dissertation consisted of an edition and translation of a Syriac text by Sergius of Reshaina on Aristotelian logic and philosophy as found in Aristotle’s Categories and Physics (Brill, 2016), for which I was rewarded by C Landbergs stiftelse in 2017. I conduct research on Syriac philosophical and zoological texts, such as the Syriac Physiologus versions. I am also interested in the agricultural vocabulary of Turoyo Neo-Aramaic.
Keywords: syriac philosophy syriac zoology (physiologus and bestiaries). syriac sciences. syriac grammar and lexicon. turoyo neo-aramaic.
