Cohort Year: 2019
Research Interests: Nineteenth-century American literature; book history; affect theory


I graduated with my B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2017. Before joining the English department at the University of Chicago, I worked for two years at West Sacramento City College’s writing center as an Instructional Assistant. My current research interests focus on the interplay between reverie and spatial atmospherics in antebellum American literature.
