Research Interests
I am interested in the intellectual, religious, and political history of Europe and the Atlantic world in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, in particular the Age of Revolutions. I am currently working on a global intellectual history of the Catholic Counterrevolution, in which I use the works of Catholic intellectuals from both shores of the Atlantic to investigate the emergence of modern Catholicism between the 1780s and the 1840s.
