I studied History of Art at the University of East Anglia. My MA dissertation was on early medieval and early Islamic stuccowork, and my PhD, which I completed in 2016, was on images of architecture in late antiquity. Since then I have been involved with the British Academy/Leverhulme-funded project ‘At the Crossroads of Empires: the Longobard Church of Sant’Ambrogio at Montecorvino Rovella (Salerno, Italy)’, and am now a Research Associate for ‘Monumental Art of the Christian and Early Islamic East’.
My research interests are the art and architecture of late antiquity and the early Islamic period. In particular I am interested in the iconography of architecture, and the uses and impacts of pattern and decorative materials.
