‌I am a historian of early modern Europe whose research focuses on the religious and intellectual history of Britain.  I teach at the University of Miami, where I am Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of History, and co-convener of the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Interdisciplinary Research Group. My first book, Reformation Unbound: Protestant Visions of Reform in England, 1525-1590, was published in 2014 by Cambridge University Press and was a finalist for the Royal Historical Society's Whitfield Prize, as well as the runner-up for the American Society of Church History's Brewer Prize.   I have published articles in Past & PresentThe Journal of Ecclesiastical HistoryArchiv für Reformationsgeschichteand History Compass, and have pieces forthcoming in Reformation and in Robert Ingram, Jason Peacey, and Alex W. Barber (eds.), Freedom of Speech, 1500-1800 (Manchester University Press). I was elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society in 2015 and served as President of the Southern Conference on British Studies from 2015-17.

I am currently working on two book projects. The first reconsiders the intellectual consequences of the Reformation in England by examining the ways in which people tried to make sense of religious error and disagreement. The second examines theological and exegetical creativity in the early decades of the English Reformation.
