Personal Statement:

Research Concentration: Women’s history within the context of medieval female monasticism.

My current project focuses on the sixth century Frankish queen and saint, Radegund, as a new model of sanctity, exploring her role and influence in terms of charity, hands-on palliative care, and hospital establishment.
