I am a Research Associate (illuminated manuscripts) at the University of Oxford as part of the Monumental Art of the Christian and Early Islamic East ERC Project. I obtained a PhD at the School of Oriental and African Studies and worked there as a teaching assistant. Subsequently, I held a postdoctoral position at the Edith O'Donnel Institute of Art History, University of Texas at Dallas. I later worked for the Hiob Ludolf Centre for Ethiopian Studies at Hamburg University and at the Vatican Library. I have collaborated with several institutions including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Vatican Apostolic Library, and the Bodleian Library.
My research focuses on the Christian Art of Ethiopia and Eritrea from about AD 400 to AD 1500.
