He joined the history department at Johns Hopkins in 1972. His speciality is the history of the early modern Europe, with particular emphasis on Habsburg Spain and its overseas empire, a subject that has engaged her attention, albeit in different ways, throughout her scholarly career. He also has long-standing interests in art history, cultural history, history of cartography, urban history, etc. He also believes in integrating literature into the study of history, and this is reflected in his joint-appointment as Professor in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.
