I am currently a lecturer on American History & Literature at Harvard University, where I serve on the History & Literature Tutorial Board, and the Head Teaching Fellow for the Harvard Humanities "Art of Looking" program. I am a director of the Novel Theory Seminar at the Mahindra Humanities Center and a member of the Doing Science Through Literature (DSL) team at Yale University. This year I am also a recipient of the Provostial Fund for the Arts and Humanities Fellowship awarded by Harvard University. While completing my Ph.D., I was appointed Visiting Instructor of Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century American Literature in the English Department at Connecticut College.

I received my Ph.D. from the Department of English at Brown University in 2014. My scholarship and teaching has been generously supported by the Huntington Library, the Christopher Isherwood Foundation, the English Institute, the Elson Family Arts Fund, the Harvard University Provostial Fund, and other fellowship-granting institutions.
