Research Interests

My research has two broad components. First, I study the New Testament writings and other early Christian literature in light of Second Temple Judaism and life under the Roman Empire, focusing especially on the Gospel of John and how this gospel intersects with social, economic, religious, and political realities faced by Christians in the first and early second centuries. My second area of focus is biblical interpretation through analytical approaches that foreground the experiences, social concerns, and identities of readers today, especially from minoritized perspectives and Latino/a perspectives in particular.
