Dr. Fink has spent time living in and traveling around Spain, conducting archival research in cities such as Madrid, Toledo, and Valladolid. Her research has been externally funded by organizations including the M. Aylwin Cotton Foundation, the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture, the American Philosophical Society, the Fulbright Scholarship Program, and the American Association of University Women. She has published a number of scholarly articles, along with the book Widowhood in Early Modern Spain: Protectors, Proprietors, and Patrons (Brill, 2010).

At UAGC, she enjoys her position as a remote professor, saying, “The online modality expands access to a broad population and thus creates the opportunity to work with learners who come to the university with a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and experiences. I thrive on interacting with students and helping them reach their own answers to the many questions posed by historical inquiry.”
