About

I am a historian of Early Modern Europe, with a particular interest in the Holy Roman Empire and the lands ruled by members of the Habsburg Dynasty, both inside the Empire and elsewhere around Europe and the world. My primary chronological period of research concentration is between approximately 1550 and 1650.

Additional research interests include the roles of Habsburg women and their courts in early modern Europe, as well as early modern empire and urban studies. I have experience directing a program in Public History and am also interested in museum studies.

My current research project centers on the imagined and experienced landscapes of the Holy Roman Empire in the 1560's and 1570's.

Potential graduate students wishing to work with me in one of the above or related fields are encouraged to contact me well in advance of the admission application deadline.
