My teaching covers a broad variety of aspects of ancient Egypt: history, civilization, religion, society, religion, everyday life. In the field of Egyptian languages and texts my teaching focuses on Middle Egyptian, Demotic, Coptic and Ptolemaic Hieroglyphs.


My main research interests include Demotic and Greek papyrology, especially the socio-economic history of Graeco-Roman Egypt, but also topics like bilingualism, prosopography and onomastics. Furthermore, I am concerned with issues of the relationship between religion and politics.
