Research Interests:

I teach courses on ancient and medieval Europe.  My research on the veneration of Saint Michael the Archangel has yielded the book The Footprints of Michael the Archangel:  The Formation and Diffusion of a Saintly Cult, c. 300-c. 800 (Palgrave, 2013).  I have also presented at numerous academic conferences, including those of the New York State Association of European Historians, the International Congress on Medieval Studies, and the Annual Symposium on Pilgrimage Studies.  My new project focuses on the monastery of Mont Saint-Michel.
