Research Interests:

I work on the architecture and monumental arts of the Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance in Western Europe. I am currently studying pre-modern stained glass (12th to 18th cent.) in Canadian collections (project funded by a SSHRC research grant – 2018-2021), as well as Late Gothic/Early Renaissance architecture in France and the narrativity/theatricality in the sculpture of church portals from that period.
