I am a generalist in English studies with an expertise in queer theory and literature, with a particular emphasis on late 19th and 20th century American literature. In addition to my literary studies, I have also completed coursework and research in Rhetoric and Composition, as well as practical pedagogies and higher education. Over the last six years, I have taught courses in literature, writing, rhetoric, and research.
