I am a Research Associate (illuminated manuscripts) at the University of Oxford as part of the Monumental Art of the Christian and Early Islamic East ERC Project. I obtained a PhD at the School of Oriental and African Studies and worked there as a teaching assistant. Subsequently, I held a postdoctoral position at the Edith O'Donnel Institute of Art History, University of Texas at Dallas. I later worked for the Hiob Ludolf Centre for Ethiopian Studies at Hamburg University and at the Vatican Library. I have collaborated with several institutions including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Vatican Apostolic Library, and the Bodleian Library.
