Dr Siam Bhayro

Dr Siam Bhayro graduated in 1997 with a First Class Honours degree in Hebrew from the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies, University College London. He was also awarded the Faculty of Arts Prize and Medallion for that session.

He gained a PhD from the same department in June 2000 for his research into the Book of Enoch, subsequently published as The Shemihazah and Asael Narrative of 1 Enoch 6-11: Introduction, Text, Translation and Commentary with Reference to Ancient Near Eastern and Biblical Antecedents (AOAT 322; Münster: Ugarit-Verlag, 2005).

For the next two years he worked on the Dictionary of Classical Hebrew at the University of Sheffield, before working for three years as Lector of Semitic Languages in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Yale University, and one year as Wellcome Trust Visiting Lecturer at the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies, University College London.

His main areas of interest are Semitic Languages, the Bible and the Ancient Near East.

At the Genizah Research Unit, he is working on a joint project with Dr Uri Ehrlich of Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, on a catalogue of liturgical items, and also identifying and describing the Hebrew and Aramaic documentary fragments throughout the T-S Collection.
