Me, very much at home in John Clare’s Garden, Helpston

I am currently writing my MA thesis in Literary Studies at Bucknell University, where I have been awarded a tuition remission and a living stipend. My research focuses on British, American, and German Romanticism, specifically the movements’ engagement with natural history, theology, and philosophy. My other research interests include Victorian literature, the Oxford Inklings, medieval ‘Otherworld’ literature, and 19th-century botanical studies.

At Bucknell, I work as an teaching and research assistant and a tutor for the British and American Literature Lab. I am also the Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships Assistant and serve as the coordinator and founder of the Shakespeare Society at Bucknell. 

I have presented my research at several international conferences, such as the Friends of Coleridge Conference, the Wordsworth Summer Conference, the British Society of Eighteenth Century Studies Annual Conference, and I’m the recent winner of the Romanticism Association’s Best Paper Award for my talk on Novalis and apophatic theology.
