Tristan's interests center around the intersection of Christianity and homosexuality across time and space. His research tends to focus around the Medieval period, and analyzes how perceptions of homosexuality have been expressed and propagated using theological and religious argumentation. He intends to pursue these research interests alongside a career in rare book librarianship, and currently attends the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he double majors in History and Library & Information Science. Tristan is also a Graduate Assistant at the U of I Rare Book & Manuscript Library, where he works on public services and collection management, including cataloging of manuscripts and early printed materials
