I work on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literature, with a focus on England and its transatlantic colonies.

I received my 2016 PhD in English from the University of Pennsylvania, where my dissertation investigated the social practices and textual forms of English cultures of mourning and memory in the Renaissance and post-Reformation. My research and teaching combine interdisciplinary approaches to material culture, the history of the book, poetic theory, and poetic form.

My past teaching includes courses on Shakespeare and Milton, as well as on Utopian and Dystopian texts from Plato to Blade Runner
