hellgatesI am a scholar, writer, and educator. Currently, I work as 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.

I am also an author of short fiction. My short stories appear or are forthcoming in Coffin Bell, Ligeia, Weird Horror, and Lightspeed.
