Personal Statement:

My research interests are in the horticultural history of medieval Iberia and the transmission of medieval gardening practices to the Americas by the Spanish. I am also interested in medieval beer brewing, colonial history, museum studies, public history, and developing living historic gardens for educational purposes.
