I'm a poet and literary critic, mostly of 18th and 19th-century British novels. I'm also newly an Assistant Professor of English at Catholic University in Washington D.C. Getting a professor job in current times gives me a lot of feelings, gratitude and...I want everyone to feel that their goals are supported and possible.
I love reading novels and eating rich desserts (I may have in mind a particular earl grey macaron I recently consumed...). I've been living in the midwest and Boulder for the last couple of years; the food-centric part of me is definitely ready to return to the East Coast!
Other facts: I am a twin, I have an outdoorsy husband who gets me off of the couch, I have shifted from being a cat person to a dog person with age, I have baking and novel-writing aspirations, and I am kind of obsessed with close reading.
