I research and write about Romantic and Victorian literature, with particular attention to the poetry of Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, Tennyson, and Browning. My dissertation explores the relationship between autobiography and genre in 19th century poetry, and looks specifically at the role of poetic autobiography in determining, or undermining, lyric and narrative modes.
I hold a Master's degree in English Literature with Distinction from Oxford University, where I was a Clarendon Scholar and co-coordinator of the Romantic Graduates Forum, and a BA in English and Theater Arts with Highest Honors from Brandeis University. At Harvard, I have coordinated the Long Eighteenth-Century and Romanticism Colloquium and led the Committee of Graduate Students (COGS).
I am currently a Teaching Fellow and Instructor at Harvard College and Harvard's Division of Continuing Education. I have taught British and American poetry from the 17th century to the present, children's and adolescent literature, narrative theory, the history of reading, and an interdisciplinary course on character archetypes.
