I’m assistant curator in the Department of Manuscripts at the J. Paul Getty Museum. I specialize in Italian manuscript illumination, French-Italian artist workshops and networks, choir book production and art for the altar, and the global Middle Ages, with a particular focus on the nexus of Afro-Eurasian book culture, portable objects, and materials. I am currently working on exhibitions about landscape painting in the Renaissance; prejudice and persecution in the medieval world; India and Europe in the Middle Ages; and the celestial realm in the Middle Ages. I am completing a PhD at The Courtauld Institute of Art in London and am an adjunct professor at Pepperdine University.
