Professional Statement

I am a PhD student in the English Department and the Program in Medieval Studies, where I study English and Latin literature from antiquity to the early modern period. Most of my work focuses, however, on the continuities and discontinuities between the medieval and the early modern in the late fourteenth through early seventeenth centuries, particularly in terms of poetic theory and the emergence of scientific thought. I am also deeply invested in questions of method and methodology in literary studies and, in particular, codicology and the history of the book, the digital humanities, and the long history of formalism.

Before coming to Berkeley, I studied at Columbia and at Cambridge, where I was the Euretta J. Kellett Fellow. I am also completing a Diploma in Manuscript Studies at the Pontifical Institute of Mediæval Studies in Toronto.

For the 2018-19 academic year, I am coordinating the Middle English Reading Group (MERG) and, with Patrick Delehanty and Catherine Sulpizio, the Theories of Science and the Humanities Townsend Center Working Group. Please email me if you'd like to join or for further information or materials.
