Senior Lecturer

Research interests

I research the Renaissance and Early Modern periods, particularly their intellectual, religious, and cultural history. I work specifically on the French Reformation, primarily the Huguenots and those supporting the French Reformed churches, and the Swiss Reformation, including all aspects of Genevan religious life. My work on the Renaissance includes publishing, esoteric knowledge, Christian-Muslim relations, the resurgence of academic skepticism, and the Christian reception of tradition. I publish on the history and character of Calvinism, and work in the digital humanities, specifically electronic editing and digital editions.

I would be interested in supervising PhD students who wish to work on any subject overlapping with the research interests set out above.  In addition, I supervise research on seventeenth century puritanism, Lutheran orthodoxy, and the Scottish and English Reformations.
