INTERESTS: My principal research interest is in the early modern history of Habsburg Austria. I have written a number of essays on processes of confessionalization and am working on a large-scale study of Melchior Khlesl (1552–1630), cardinal, bishop of Vienna, and chief advisor to Emperor Matthias. I also run an academic editing business, working with scholars at Yale and further afield as they prepare their research for publication.
COURSES: In 2013–14 I will be teaching and coordinating Religion 700a at the Divinity School and teaching my section “Faking It” in English 114, on academic writing.
