About Me

I hold a Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania. As of July 2023, I will be junior faculty at the University of Guelph.

Before coming to Penn, I earned an M.A. in English at The Ohio State University and a Bachelor’s of Arts & Science in Environment at McGill University. I also hold graduate certificates from the Price Lab for Digital Humanities and the Penn Center for Teaching and Learning.

I am committed to cultivating open, interdisciplinary conversations through my research and teaching. My research interests include the multilingual literatures of England from the twelfth century to the seventeenth, the history of zoology, premodern gender, and digital manuscript studies. I have taught courses on literature and science, medieval and early modern literature, and English composition. I can also frequently be found at the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books, and Manuscripts, where I am currently the Brizdle-Schoenberg Fellow in the History of Material Texts.
