My research focuses on the interpretation of midrashic literature, with particular reference to Jewish-Christian and Jewish-Muslim relations, Jewish history from biblical times to Late Antiquity, and apocalypticism and eschatology. Following a BA in Theology and an MPhil in Hebrew Bible, I completed my PhD at Christ’s College, University of Cambridge, examining Jewish apocalyptic texts as a response to the emergence of Islam. I then worked as a Research Associate first at the University of Sheffield (2003-2005) and then the University of Cambridge (2005-2009) before joining the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations in 2009.

I am a historian of mobility, travel, archives, commemoration, and the Catholic Reformation. My research uses the case of the dispersed English and Dutch Catholic minorities as a means to reconsider the geographical, thematic, and chronological confines of scholarship on the European Catholic Church in the early modern period. I have taught at the University of Cambridge, Queen Mary University of London, the University of Reading, Oxford Brookes, and the University of Oxford. I am also actively involved in organising conferences and seminars, primarily related to record keeping or about early modern Catholic history. I currently am the book reviews editor for British Catholic History, the preeminent journal for the history of Catholicism in Britain and Ireland published with Cambridge University Press.

I am a first year PhD student in Christian Theology at the University of Cambridge. My thesis explores the relationship between the doctrines of divine simplicity and the Trinity, with special attention to the revisionary metaphysics of Robert W Jenson. I am an adjunct instructor for Southern Nazarene University (Bethany, OK, USA). I am interested in Christian and Platonic metaphysics, particularly in participation and the analogia entis.

I am a historian of early modern science, medicine and the environment, with particular focus on Italy but increasingly extending my research to transnational networks. After graduating from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan, I obtained both my MPhil and PhD from the University of Cambridge. Since then, I taught at the University of Cambridge (U.K.), the University of Washington (U.S.A.), the University of New South Wales (Australia), and the University of Edinburgh (U.K.). I held prestigious fellowships at I Tatti – The Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, The Warburg Institute, London, and the Shelby Cullom Davis Center at Princeton University. My research has been supported by the British Academy, The Leverhulme Trust, The Royal Society of Edinburgh, The Carnegie Trust, The European Commission, and The Global Challenges Research Fund (AHRC/NERC/EHSC). I published widely on Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical studies, Renaissance astrology, and courtly science.
