I am a historian and a historian of art, with a focus on gender and culture in Britain and France during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Currently, I am a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows.

I specialize in the study of art by women, and the ways in which women have navigated sociopolitical barriers to participate in their societies through art, literature, and other modes of intellectual and creative expression. My research emphasizes the often unprecedented nature of such activity at moments of political revolution and change.
