My research interests are in Renaissance Studies, particularly Renaissance philosophy and learning, education, cosmology and Copernicanism. I have published articles and books in these fields and have won various fellowships, research awards and travel grants, in the UK, Germany and the USA. My research over the past ten or so years has focused on cosmology in the sixteenth and early seventeenth century, with special focus on Marsilio Ficino, Copernicus and Giordano Bruno. I am currently working on a volume outlining the essential features of Bruno's philosophy.
