I write and teach about eighteenth-century literature and culture, Romanticism, the environmental humanities, global studies, and the history and theory of the novel.

I am a 2018-19 Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Rice University Humanities Research Center, where I am a participant in the yearlong seminar "Waste: Histories and Futures." I completed my PhD in the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Chicago.
