Ed Triplett is a Lecturing Fellow in the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies. His research has focused on the architecture of Iberia's military-religious orders, and the use of spatial methods for reconstructing medieval landscapes. He teaches courses on the design and construction of castles, monasteries and cathedrals during the Middle Ages, and on the use of GIS for mapping historical subjects. Ed has been a core member of the the Wired Lab for Digital Art History since 2016, and he is currently developing a 3D mapping project that reconstructs an early 16th century codex of Portuguese castle plans and perspective drawings known as "Book of Fortresses."
