Her current research interests include the Epistle to the Hebrews; the Book of Revelation; Greek grammar and syntax; linguistics; hermeneutics; biblical theology; Second Temple Literature (particularly apocalyptic literature); archaeology; and historical backgrounds of the New Testament. She is writing the volume on Hebrews in the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testaments series (Broadman & Holman, 2017) and is currently working on several projects related to the Book of Revelation.

Prior to coming to Trinity, Dr. Harris was the managing editor of the Hoover Digest, a quarterly academic journal covering public policy, economics, and foreign affairs, published by the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. She coordinated a program, funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts, that brought young diplomats from former Soviet-satellite countries to Stanford for four-month study programs (1990-1995). As an undergraduate, she double-majored in International Relations and French Studies. Prior to coming to Trinity, she was also extensively involved in ministry.
