I obtained a BA from the University of Wisconsin (2000), a Maîtrise from the University of Paris I (2001) and a PhD in Medieval History from the Johns Hopkins University (2007). I have taught at Queen’s University and at Durham University. I was a Leverhulme Trust Early-Career Fellow at the School of History of the University of Kent from to 2012 to 2014. I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of History at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

Together with April Morris, Susanna Throop and Laura Whatley, I am co-editing a collection of articles entitled The Crusades and Visual Culture (to be published with Ashgate).
