I’m an associate professor of History at Wilfrid Laurier University, in Waterloo, Ontario, where I have taught courses on medieval, renaissance and early modern Europe since 1997. My graduate studies were pursued at the University of Toronto, where I received my MA in History in 1990 and my PhD in History in 1996...


In June 2014 I delivered an invited research presentation at the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, University of Pennsylvania, entitled “Digital florilegia: the Manipulus florum and Compendium moralium notabilium projects...and beyond”.

Since Fall 2015, the Chrysostomus Latinus in Iohannem Online (CLIO) Project has sought to provide transcriptions of all three Latin translations of John Chrysostom's 88 homilies on the Gospel of John. The project is expected to be completed by April 2020. For more information, see the project website: http://clioproject.net.
