About Me

I’m a researcher focusing on literature, science, and the environment in premodern England. Currently, I am an assistant professor at the University of Guelph in Ontario.

Before coming to Guelph, I was a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania, where I completed my Ph.D. in English Literature in 2023. I also hold degrees from Ohio State (English) and McGill (Environment).

I am committed to cultivating open, interdisciplinary conversations through my scholarship and teaching. My research projects engage with the history of zoology, premodern gender variance, astronomical diagrams, and digital editing. I have taught courses on literature and science, medieval and early modern literature, and academic writing. I am also invested in creating digital resources and podcasts.
