Personal profile

Research overview

My research focuses on diplomatic and cultural encounters in the Eastern Mediterranean region in and around the thirteenth century.  My first book considered relations between the Mamluk Sultans and the Armenians of Cilicia; more recently I have looked at the arrival of the Mongols in the region, and more generally at their reception by those they had dealings with to the west of their empire, in the Middle East and Europe.
