I work on the transmission, appropriation, and circulation of scientific knowledge across cultural boundaries in the medieval and early modern Mediterranean, with a focus on astrology, astronomy, and optics. As artifacts of exchange, I’m particularly interested in books as material objects, both as manuscripts and in printed form, and in the marginalia, annotations, inscriptions, and codicological features that reveal their unique histories.
