Stephanie Nicole Nordby is a co-editor of Blogos. She is a doctoral student in theology working under supervisors N.T. Wright and Oliver Crisp at the University of St Andrews.

Prior to her time at St Andrews, Nordby received a Ph.D. in philosophy under the supervision of Linda Zagzebski at the University of Oklahoma. Her dissertation focused on divine predication and attributes, biblical genres and philosophy of language, and classical theism and the Hebrew Scriptures. In addition to her interest in analytic and exegetical theology, Nordby is interested in metaphysics, animal ethics, and virtue ethics.
