Bio:

I'm originally from New York, which is also where I got my B.A. and my Masters degrees before moving to North Carolina to finish my Ph.D at UNC Chapel Hill. I was trained as a medieval historian, but I also teach classes in ancient history, the history of the Renaissance and Reformation and the history of early science. My own particular areas of interest are medieval cultural and intellectual history. I’m especially interested in how people in earlier times thought about and wrote history Currently I’m researching and writing about accounts of interreligious relations and violence in the period of the Crusades. In addition to being a historian, I’m also a musician. I play the piano and I sometimes sing, these days with the North Carolina Master Chorale in Raleigh.
