I’m assistant curator in the Department of Manuscripts at the Getty Museum. I'm pursuing a PhD at The Courtauld Institute of Art in London and I hold a master’s from Syracuse University in Italian Renaissance art as well as a bachelor’s degree from Pepperdine University in art history and Romance linguistics and cultures. My most recent projects were the exhibition and book Gardens of the Renaissance, Renaissance Splendors of the Northern Italian Courts (expanded on Google Open Gallery), and Traversing the Globe through Illuminated Manuscripts. I was also contributing curator and author to the exhibition and catalogue Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance: Painting and Illumination, 1300–1350. I am currently working on exhibitions related to landscape painting in Renaissance manuscripts and global journeys between medieval India and Europe.
