I am a third-year 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 compare to historical environmental issues and changes. I will be 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 the editorial assistant of Manuscript Studies, the journal of the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies.
