About Me

I’m an art historian who researches the intersection of art and religion in the colonial Andes and the Philippines.  My current research focuses on convents and beaterios and the role of art in those institutions primarily in the 18th century.

I received my PhD in 2016 from the University of Cambridge in Art History, after which I was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career fellow at the Institute of Latin American Studies (part of the School of Advanced Study, University of London).  I am currently the inaugural Thoma Scholar for the Art of the Spanish Americas at the Thoma Art Foundation.
