I received my bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and History from UCLA. After graduating, I stayed on at UCLA and earned a Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Classics. I completed my Ph.D. in Medieval History at the University of Southern California (2011), and studied paleography at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, at the University of Toronto.

Fields of Interest

Medieval Europe (Medicine, Religious Visionaries, Universities)

My research focuses on the intersection of medicine, science, and religion in Europe during the Late Medieval and Early Modern periods. My dissertation, Marvel Not: Doubting Religious Visionaries in Fourteenth-Century France, analyzes debates about nature and the human body, and their relation to revealed truth and religious tradition. More specifically, my work traces points of contact between medical theories of the body and Christian spirituality in the works of several theologian-philosophers at the University of Paris, and their influence on ordinary believers.
