About Me


I am an Associate Professor of English at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Previously, I was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities at MIT.

My research focuses on the intersections between, and social impacts of, literary forms and media formats. I teach courses on topics including media theory, modernism, the novel, experimental literature, the Gothic, and the digital humanities. I am the author of Out of Print: Mediating Information in the Novel and the Book (University of Massachusetts Press, 2020).

I received my Ph.D. in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara and my Master’s degree from Trinity College Dublin.
