I am a historian of the early modern Spanish world with a special interest in colonial Spanish America. This website is a forum for me to share about my research and teaching and a way for me to reflect upon my travels in Mexico City and beyond. It also provides me with an opportunity to muse about my experiences in libraries and archives across Europe and the Americas.

On this site you will find my biography and curriculum vitae; a description of my research interests and links to my publications and conference abstracts; my teaching philosophy, current syllabi, and research guide; links to libraries and archives related to the history of Latin America; and a selection of photo essays and travelogues.
