My research is located at the intersection of art, architectural history, soundscape studies and musicology. I have published on a range of subjects focusing on the relationships between architecture and music and the material, spatial and sensorial dimensions of Renaissance social life. My work has appeared in publications by Bibliotheca Hertziana, Brepols, Olschki and Skira, among others, and in journals such as Renaissance Quarterly, Art History and Confraternitas. Founder of the Renaissance Musical Instruments Network and co-author of Reshaping Sacred Space: Liturgy, Patronage and Design in Church Interiors ca. 1500 – 1750 (2015), I am currently preparing a monograph titled Between Pietas and Magnificentia: Architecture, Music and Sensorial Performance at the Confraternity of the Misericordia Maggiore in the Venetian Terraferma, as well as editing a collection of essays on the material culture of Renaissance music.
I am the Opler Fellow at Worcester College, I collaborate with the Royal Academy of Music in London and I teach at the Master of Advanced Studies in Renaissance Polyphony Performance at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana. Previously I have held postdoctoral research positions at the University of Cambridge and the Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies at the University of York. Before coming to Oxford, I was Hanna Kiel Fellow at the Harvard University Centre for Renaissance Studies at Villa I Tatti.
