Researcher · Educator
I am a Ph.D. candidate and instructor of composition and British literature in the Department of English at Loyola University Chicago. Prior to matriculating into doctoral studies at Loyola, I earned a Master of Arts in English at Loyola University Chicago (conferred 2017) and a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Political Science at Miami University of Ohio (conferred 2016). My previous research interests in linguistic and performance theories culminated in my peer-reviewed article on Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus (Text and Presentation, 2018); currently, my academic projects bring ecofeminist theory to bear on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English literature and vice versa. As such, I am currently crafting a dissertation project that uses methodologies prioritized in ecofeminism to explore ethical, political, and ecological appeals in early modern drama, poetry, and prose.
