Biography: 

After completing her CHESS-funded PhD in Judaeo-Arabic philology at the University of Cambridge (May 2018), under the supervision of Prof. Geoffrey Khan, Magdalen became a part-time Research Assistant at the Cambridge University Library’s Taylor-Schechter Genizah Research Unit, where she identifies and catalogues Arabic and Judaeo-Arabic manuscripts in the Cairo Genizah collections. She continues this work as a Research Associate one day a week. Her research centres on the orthography, (limited) phonology, morphology and syntax of Jewish, Muslim and Christian Middle Arabic folk tales.
