About

I am an art historian specialising in cultural transfers, historiography (19th-20th century) and the interrelation of art and translation. I joined Queen Mary in 2017 and I am currently a lecturer in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures. I teach on the visual culture of the French-speaking world.
