She received her Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 2003, and her dissertation research was funded with fellowships from the Fulbright Program and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Before coming to UWM, she spent two years as Southern Methodist University’s Haakon Fellow in Art History. Her work has been published in journals including /Sixteenth Century Journal/ and /Seventeenth-Century News/.
