She is currently Assistant Professor (UZH-Förderungsprofessur) at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and Principal Investigator of the research project “Global Economies of Salvation. Art and the Negotiation of Sanctity in the Early Modern Period” funded by the ERC (Starting Grant) and the SNSF (PRIMA Grant).
