Professional Statement

I am a PhD candidate in the English Department and the Program in Medieval Studies. While my interests range chronologically from antiquity to the early seventeenth century, most of my research focuses on the transitional period between the medieval and the early modern in England (1380-1580). My work explores intersections between the history of science and poetic theory, codicology and the history of the book, and the relationship between Latin informational prose and English imaginative writing.

I hold a B.A. from Columbia and a M.Phil. from 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.

In my research and teaching, I am committed to the study of the past in a global context, a global context which recognizes how structures of power related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and disability have produced our past, present, and future.
