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 and teaching areas include book history, digital humanities, law and literature, performance studies, and gender and sexuality studies. I’ve written on some of 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.
