I am a Ph.D. candidate with research interests in late medieval poetry, environmental theory, the history of science, and digital manuscript studies. My work considers literature and the life sciences in twelfth- to sixteenth-century Western Europe, which I read alongside historical environmental changes.

During the 2019-20 academic year, I will be a Penn Program in Environmental Humanities graduate fellow and co-coordinator of the Med/Ren Working Group, having 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.
