I’m a historian of art, architecture, material culture, and music with particular interests in landscape and its representations in the Anglo-American world. After degrees in art history from Haverford College and the Courtauld Institute and in musicology from Oxford, I completed my doctorate in art history at Berkeley in 2015. I have received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Smithsonian Institution and my essays have appeared in Huntington Library Quarterly, the Bulletin of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Routledge Companion to Music and Visual Culture. As of 2017, I am Associate Curator of American Art at the Newark Museum, with primary responsibility for that institution’s major collection of nineteenth-century American art.
