Research Interests: 

Victorian Literature


I came to Chicago in 2013 after traveling for several years in the United States. I received a B.A. from Hunter College in 2010, completing a thesis which explored questions about the aesthetic conflation of nature and poverty in the poetry of William Wordsworth and John Clare. Prior to beginning graduate study, I worked variously as a bookseller, taxidermy seller, street performer, actor, gardener, and dog walker.
