I am an early career researcher investigating the connections between technology, gender, politics, and aesthetics in the city in late-Victorian, Edwardian, and Modernist literature. My doctoral research on literary responses to the electrification of London at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries was funded by a Doctoral Fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada. I completed my D.Phil. in English Literature at St Anne's College at the University of Oxford in 2016. Before beginning my doctorate, I obtained an MA in English Literature (2011), a BA (Hons) in English Literature (2010), and an MA in Classics (2008) from Queen's University, Canada, as well as a BA (Hons) in Classical Studies from the University of British Columbia.
I have taught a range of upper-year undergraduate lecture courses and seminars as well as graduate seminars for MA students and first-year doctoral candidates on topics in early twentieth century literature at Queen’s University in Canada and at the University of Oxford, where I also supervise a number of undergraduate dissertations in late-nineteenth- and twentieth-century British literature.
I am currently the co-host of LitSciPod, a podcast about Literature and Science. Recent episodes are available across all podcasting platforms.
I am based in the UK.
