My area of research and teaching include art and material culture of western Europe and the medieval Mediterranean in the nexus of image and object theory, anthropology, magic and religion as well as medieval folklore. I am currently completing a book manuscript dealing with medieval bronzes while developing a second project regarding votive offerings in the Middle Ages (ex votos). A third project, emerging from the first two, is a study of astrology and medieval magic in the context of medieval art and material culture, is in preliminary stages of development.
