B.A. (Concentration in Philosophy, Queen's University); Dip. C.S. (Early Childhood Education, Institute of Child Study, University of Toronto); M.A. (Art History, Queen's University); PhD (Art History, Queen's University).
SSHRC (Doctoral, 1998); Bader Travel Fellowship (1998). With the help of the Bader Travel Fellowship, I spent 1998-99 in Amsterdam researching the iconography of the scientist in 17th-century Dutch and Flemish painting.
I have taught courses in art history on topics ranging from art and science in early modern Europe to Orientalism in 19th and early-20th century French and British painting, but most of my teaching has been in the area of seventeenth-century European art.
Recent publications include articles on art and alchemy such as "Convention and Change in Seventeenth-Century Paintings of Alchemists," in Art and Alchemy, (Copenhagen: Museum Tusculanum Press, 2006) and "Seeing Things: The Alchemist and Death by Thomas Wyck," in Collected Opinions: Essays on Netherlandish Art in Honour of Alfred Bader (London: Paul Holberton, 2004). I have presented papers at academic conferences and learned societies in Canada, the United States, and Europe, as well as given more informal gallery talks.
