About


My professional headshot.

Welcome! I’m an Assistant Professor of English at Dalhousie University, specializing in early modern drama and literature (ca. 1550-1700). I was previously the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Digital Humanities Network Postdoctoral Fellow at the Jackman Humanities Institute, University of Toronto. I received my PhD in English Literature from Yale University.

My other research interests include law and literature, gender and sexuality studies, religious toleration, and the history of Shakespearean performance and editing. I’ve written on these topics for the journals English Literary Renaissance, Studies in Philology, Eighteenth-Century Studies, Milton Studies, and Early Theatre. A full list of publications and awards can be found in my CV.
