Born in San Francisco, Emily attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a volleyball scholarship and graduated with Highest Honours in both Medieval History and Art History. She came to the History of Art Department at Cambridge to work with Prof Paul Binski on Gothic painting, funded by the ORS, Cambridge Trust, and Pembroke College. In the Department, she assisted with teaching on numerous Tripos papers, co-convened the French Gothic course, and led undergraduate student trips to France. After conducting fieldwork with the Centre des Monuments Nationaux, she became a Junior Research Fellow at Merton College Oxford. Her first book, "Crowning Paris" will appear later this year in the Transactions of the American Philosophical Society Series and Harvey Miller will publish her forthcoming monograph on "The Wall Paintings of the Sainte-Chapelle: Passion, Devotion and the Gothic Imagination" in 2016. Emily is grateful to the Department for its incredible support over the years and she is delighted to continue her teaching and research in the shadow of Thomas Becket at Canterbury. The Department would like to congratulate Dr Guerry on her appointment at the University of Kent.
