From 2008 to 2016 I was a lecturer in Art History at the University of Amsterdam. During this period I also wrote my PhD thesis there. At the moment I am a guest researcher at the UvA. Currently (2016-2018) I hold a two-year postdoctoral fellowship (Juan de la Cierva-Formación, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitivity), and participate in Therese Martin’s project “The Medieval Treasury across Frontiers and Generations: The Kingdom of León-Castilla in the Context of Muslim-Christian Interchange, c. 1050-1200” (funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitivity, HAR2015-68614-P).

Research interests

gender, patronage, 12th century, nobility, treasuries, metalwork, coins, reception of the Middle Ages


Over the years I have been actively involved in the Art History undergraduate curriculum: Medieval Amsterdam in Context (with Annika Rulkens). In 2013 this course was nominated for the Teaching Award awarded by the Faculty of Humanities. Others courses I have developed are: Outsiders in Medieval Art (together with Wendelien van Welie), Representation of Power in the Middle Ages, Survey of Art History I: Ancient & Medieval Art, Medieval Iconography in East and West (together with Sanne Frequin)



I am one of the founders of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies Amsterdam (CMRSA).

Since 2011 I am part of the steering committee of CARMEN (The Worldwide Medieval Network).

I am also participating in the Royal Studies Network (Winchester)
