I am a Ph.D. candidate with research interests in late medieval English and French poetry, environmental theory, the history of science, and manuscript studies. My work considers literature and the life sciences in twelfth- to sixteenth-century Western Europe, which I read alongside historical environmental issues and changes. I am co-coordinating the Med/Ren Working Group in 2019-20, and have previously directed the Anthropocene & Animal StudiesMedievalists @ Penn, Paleography, and Trans Literacy Working Groups. I am also a graduate fellow with the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities and the editorial assistant of Manuscript Studies, the journal of the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies.
