At Rice, I advise emerging scholars in our graduate program whose research explores different aspects of the visual and material cultures of late medieval Europe and the greater Mediterranean.

I also teach undergraduate and graduate classes about the art and visual culture of medieval Europe, connecting these works to the larger Mediterranean landscape as well as Africa and Asia.
