I am a researcher, educator, and academic copyeditor. I have extensive experience teaching composition, literature, and research skills and principles at the college level; working in academic publishing; and participating in community engagement projects. Currently, I am Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor in Purdue University’s Honors College and the Director of the R1: Research Accelerator learning community.

My research focuses on Restoration and eighteenth-century British literature and culture and has been published or is forthcoming in Journal for Early Modern Cultural StudiesSEL Studies in English Literature 1500-1900, and Eighteenth-Century Fiction, among others. My book project explores devils and devilish curiosity in eighteenth-century British literature.
