More About Me
I am an Assistant Professor of European History at The University of St. Thomas. My fields of study are Medieval History, Ancient Roman History, History of Early Modern England, and Art History, with specialization in Matilda of Tuscany, women’s history, the Church Reform of the eleventh century, friendship, and spirituality in the eleventh century. I received my Ph.D. in History from the University of Houston, Texas, in 2021. My dissertation,
“The Friendship Network of Matilda of Tuscany. Reconstructing Matilda’s Motivation and Ideology Through the Lens of her Individual Relationships” reevaluates the life and motivation of Matilda of Tuscany (1046-1115), one of the most significant female figures of the European Middle Ages.
