I am an Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Cornell University, jointly appointed in the Jewish Studies Program and the Science and Technology Studies Department. 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 my Ph.D. (2018) from 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 book manuscript, Gestating Judaism: The Corpuses and Corporalities of American Jewish Feminisms, critically examines how American Jewish women in the United States and Israel deploy gendered technologies and knowledge to challenge normative structures within Jewish social and religious life.
