Last week, the College warmly welcomed Dr Carly Crouch, S.A. Cook Bye-Fellow, and Dr Emilie Ringe, Supernumerary Fellow.
Dr Crouch is joining Caius for one year, from her role as Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham, to further her theological research into the relationship between Israel and Judah. Her work seeks to understand the way that the biblical texts speak to and about these two entities.
Originally from California, Dr Crouch moved to UK to further her studies in Theology. Her degrees include: BA Religious Studies (Scripps College, California), PGDip Theology, MPhil, DPhil (all University of Oxford) and a PGCHE (University of Nottingham). She has also held research fellowships at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge and Keble College, Oxford.
A position that was last held 15 years ago, the S.A. Cook Bye-Fellowship was created in the memory of the late S.A. Cook, a Fellow of Caius, for the furtherance of research in Biblical studies (including the Rabbinics and Patristics), the philosophy of religion and the comparative study of religion.
Arriving in Cambridge from a Professorship at Rice University, Texas, Dr Emilie Ringe joins the College as a Supernumerary Fellow. Dr Ringe will be lecturing in Material Science at Caius as part of her position as University Teaching Officer (UTO) at the Departments of Materials Science and Metallurgy, and Earth Sciences.
Dr Ringe earned her BA, MS and PhD – all in Chemistry – from Northwestern University, Illinois. Following her PhD, she became the Gott Research Fellow at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, as well as a Newton International Research Fellow (Royal Society) in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy.
An active promoter of science internationally, Dr Ringe’s research uses correlative, multi-scale approaches, based mainly on electron and light microscopy, to understand how nano- and atomic-scale features affect the bulk optical and electronic properties of crystals.
