About me:
The main focus of my research is on ecclesiastical life during the tenth to twelfth centuries, principally in France. My doctorate was on Bishop Fulbert of Chartres (died 1028) and his social and intellectual circle. I am also interested in Christian attitudes towards Jews in this period, and have published on tenth-century peasant politics.

I am involved in the collaborative ERC-funded project 'Communication and Empire: Chinese Empires in Comparative Perspective' (http://chinese-empires.eu/), based at the University of Leiden. This makes comparisons between China and Latin Europe during the middle ages: my contribution involves comparative analysis of intellectual elites.
