Welcome to my portfolio site! I’m a researcher and teacher of 18th- and 19-century literature and culture, with particular interest in the history of media, Romantic theatre, and technology.
As of fall 2020, I hold the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate at the School of English and Drama at Queen Mary University of London where I’m working on the British Academy funded project, “Romantic Melodrama: Feeling in Search of Form.” I’m also completing two book projects: the first on the impact of wartime telecommunication networks on Romantic literature, and the second on the role of the theatre on the business of Romantic authorship. I received my Ph.D. in English in 2019 from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and my Bachelor’s degree in 2012 from the University of Pennsylvania. I’ve taught courses on technology and literary form, the politics of space in literature, authorship before 1660, and nonfiction prose composition, along others.
I’ve been generously supported by the Keats-Shelley Association of America, the Huntington Library, the McMaster University Library, and CU Boulder. My work has appeared in SEL 1500-1900 and Romantic Textualities, while other essays are soon to appear in Keats-Shelley Journal, European Romantic Review, and Essays in Romanticism.
