I am a writer and scholar of late medieval English literature at Duke University, specializing in devotional poetics and book history. I defended my dissertation, Lines of Relation: Devotional Verse and Active Reading in Late Medieval English Books, in January 2023. My research has been supported by the Medieval Academy of America, Yale University’s Institute of Sacred Music, and the Duke Kenan Institute for Ethics. I hold degrees in interdisciplinary arts and religion study from Yale Divinity School (MAR) and Gordon College (BA). I have an article on the socially connective temporalities of John Lydgate’s Kalendare forthcoming in Mediaevalia: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Medieval Studies Worldwide.
In 2022/23, I am completing an internship in innovative pedagogy with Duke’s Language, Arts, and Media Program. I am also building on my fifteen years of experience in the publishing industry by managing the Yale Journal of Music & Religion and assisting with editorial tasks for Duke’s Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies.
