Kristi Jamrisko is a PhD student studying seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish art with Dr. Arthur Wheelock. Prior to coming to the University of Maryland, she graduated from The College of William and Mary (B.A. Government and French, 2002), taught English to junior high school students in rural Japan, and served as a science and nuclear policy analyst at the Japanese Embassy in Washington, D.C. Kristi intends to incorporate her interests in science and Japan into her graduate studies, exploring the nexus of art and science in the Dutch Golden Age (e.g. botanical illustration, optics, images of rariteitenkabinetten [cabinets of curiosities]) and examining the cultural exchange that took place between the Netherlands and Japan during this pivotal time period.
