Fields: Ancient & Medieval Europe, World History, Environmental History, and Landscape & Garden History

I study the intersection of economy, environment, and politics through land and natural resource management in the late Middle Ages. My work is informed by economic history, landscape studies, environmental studies, and social science theories about the construction of space and identity. 

I have strong related interests in ancient and medieval archaeology, historical and political ecology, and public health, especially as concerns the structuring of urban and rural space.
