This website houses my virtual CV. If you would like a text-only version, you can download the PDF on the left.

I am a PhD student and composition instructor in the English department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I research stuff--quite literally, stuff. My research seeks ways in which New Materalist and Thing-theory approaches to the Environmental Humanities can help us read literatures from the nineteenth century as tools for contending with the current ecological crisis. I bring this way of thinking to my research, classroom, and the other collaborative groups that I belong to. On this website, you'll find some work I've done as a graduate student and teacher.

My family name means small mountain. For them, I persist and climb.
