I am a researcher, educator, and academic copyeditor. I have extensive experience working in academic publishing, teaching college composition and literature courses, and participating in community engagement projects. Currently, I am Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor in Purdue University’s Honors College and serve as 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 in SEL Studies in English Literature 1500-1900, Eighteenth-Century Fiction, Women’s WritingRomantic Circles, and Children’s Literature Association Quarterly. My book project explores devils and devilish curiosity in eighteenth-century British literature.
