I am an Art Historian whose research focuses predominantly on art and architecture in early modern Venice. I have written about topics that include the patronage of parish priests and confraternities in Italy after the Council of Trent; a reconstruction of the decoration of the first Jesuit church in Venice (which featured paintings by Tintoretto, Veronese and Jacopo Bassano) and the garden of Bevis Bawa in Sri Lanka. I am currently working on a monograph called Reforming Art in Renaissance Venice which explores the impact that religious reform had on the visual arts in Venice during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. I am a research associate at Keble College and a member of the History Faculty. I am also senior tutor of the Middlebury-CMRS Oxford Humanities programme where I teach courses on Art and Censorship (1500-1650) and Art and Religion on the Global Jesuit Missions (1540-1773).
