About me


I’m an Associate Research Scholar in the Humanities Council at Princeton University. My academic research focuses on emotion, community, and belonging in late medieval English literature and culture. My current book project, The Fullness of the Heart: Speaking and Feeling in Late Medieval England, explores how ethics and aesthetics converged in medieval rules for speech. More generally, I’m interested in emotion, interiority, personhood, and ideas about reading and understanding past and present. 

I’ve taught courses in medieval and early modern literature at UC Berkeley and Boston University, as well as writing seminars on climate change at Harvard. My CV is here.
