My primary area of teaching is focused on Modern Art in Europe in the 19th and 20th Centuries. In addition, I have offered topics such as Modern Art in Paris, Chemistry and Art, Dada and Surrealism, and Interpreting Modern Art. I also teach an introduction to visual culture, and contribute to the department's Practicing Art History course. My general research interests include the relationship of art to science in the Modern era, the city of Paris as a center of Modern Art, and the role of technology in exploring visual knowledge. Some current projects include a study of the image of the night sky in 19th century painting, and a wiki on Modern Art in Paris.
