I am a historian of early modern Europe, interested in the spaces and processes of knowledge-production, especially in medicine, historiography, natural philosophy, and the intersections of religion and science. I received my B.A. in history from Yale University and my M.Phil. in Theology (ecclesiastical history) from the University of Oxford, where I was an Ertegun Scholar. Current projects include theological responses to plague in sixteenth-century England, the prison writings of Stephen Gardiner, and twentieth-century horror fiction.
My work has been published in Early Science and Medicine, Names: A Journal of Onomastics, and The Journal of Ecclesiastical History, and is forthcoming in Gothic Studies. My annotated translation of the Spanish Jesuit Pedro de Ribadeneyra's history of the English Reformation was published in 2017 by Brill. I serve as an editor for JHIBlog and an assistant editor for the Journal of Jesuit Studies.
