Profile

My work focuses on late-medieval Latin liturgical chant manuscripts from Continental Europe. In the past few years, I have identified and fully catalogued two previously-unknown late-medieval Graduals, one each from Spain and Italy. I am passionate about sharing my research with both scholarly and general audiences, and have done so in the form of paper presentations at academic conferences, school presentations for students of all ages, and multimedia exhibits and musical performances of my research. Other interests include paleography, fragmentology, and early medieval Irish manuscripts.
