I received my BA and MA in History from Wesleyan University and Sciences-Po Paris, respectively, and my PhD in Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture from the Bard Graduate Center in New York City (2016). I was the Zvi Yavetz fellow at the University of Tel Aviv from 2015-2016¬†and a postdoctoral researcher based at the University of Leiden, Netherlands in the HERA-funded project “Printing the Past. Architecture, Print Culture, and Uses of the Past in Modern Europe” (PriArc), from 2017 until 2019. I am currently Professor in the Art History department at the University of Ghent in Belgium.

Things I love, in no particular order: family, sun, travel, archives, books, running, social justice, the beach, good food and wine, my job, the New Yorker, Beyonce, long chats with friends.
