My research focuses on ancient Egyptian religion and magic, in particular funerary and ritual texts. I aim to contextualise their production and use, especially by the identification of individual scribes and priestly families, and their social milieu. I specialise in hieratic, the cursive writing form of Egyptian hieroglyphs, and I also work on the ancient Egyptian language with a specific focus on its later phases in the Late and Graeco-Roman Periods, i.e. Demotic—designating both the later phase of the language and its cursive writing form—and the hieroglyphic writings inscribed on temple walls of the Ptolemaic Period.

My habilitation project entitled ‘The Khoiak Festival: A Glimpse into Ancient Egyptian Festival Practice’ includes the study and publication of several major sources connected to the Khoiak festival, such as the famous Dendera Khoiak Inscription and the texts preserved on P. Louvre N. 3176 (S). It is intended to enrich our knowledge of this major ancient Egyptian festival.
