I’m a PhD student in English specializing in medieval literature, with interests in digital humanities, medieval science, manuscript studies, and affect theory. Previously, my work has centered on a range of manuscripts including bestiaries, scientific miscellanies, and most recently a 15th-century French copy of the Regime du Corps. Currently, I am writing a dissertation about the representation of melancholy in medieval English literature, a project which brings together ecocriticsm, disability studies, and affect theory to demonstrate the multivalence of medieval perspectives on mental experience.
I am currently an instructor of record at Queens College in Flushing, NY, where I teach writing and literature. I am also designing and producing a podcast about medievalism in the modern world, which will release in 2021.
In addition to my work as a medievalist, I am a freelance writer working on cultural criticism and new media, including writing about games and film. A complete list of my freelance work can be found on the Portfolio page.
