My research examines art and visual culture in early-modern Northern Europe, especially of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and north of the Alps. My dissertation, “‘Was Sichst Du? The Instrumentation of Sight in Early Modern German Art,” explores the use of perspectival techniques in paintings and prints to establish a new mode of viewing grounded in period concepts of memory and vision.

Current projects investigate double-sided paintings, anamorphoses, Reformation-era artistic changes, and uses of perspective by artists in Southern Germany.
