About Me


I am a second-year English Ph.D. student at the University of Pennsylvania. Before coming to Penn, I earned an M.A. in English at Ohio State University, with an interdisciplinary specialization in Medieval & Renaissance studies, and a Bachelor’s of Arts & Science at McGill University in Honours Environment (First Class).

My research interests include English and French poetry of the late Middle Ages, ecocriticism and the history of science, and book history. My recent work has considered literary representations of engineering and robotics; obscenity in medieval English and modern Québécois drama; and the reception history of musical manuscripts.
