I am a thoughtful, detail-oriented, and charismatic person dedicated to quality work founded on intellectual integrity and creative rigor. I value independent work as well as collaborative engagement, and my years as a graduate student and a university writing instructor taught me how to seek balance between the two. I am a Byronist, first and foremost, and am most influenced by the theoretical works of Georges Bataille, Paul de Man, Roland Barthes, Walter Benjamin, Maurice Blanchot, and Julia Kristeva. My scholarship focuses mainly on British Romantic poetry and Post-Structuralist Literary Theory and Criticism. As a Romanticist, I remain invested in aesthetics––both in visual and linguistic production––and my skills in close rhetorical analysis allow me to apply critical strategies to improve both my work as well as the work of my colleagues and students. I strive to rethink common assumptions about literature and language through analysis that interrogates the presentation of narrative and authorial identities and the stability of rhetorical expression. I trace Romantic aesthetics and affects from past to present iterations in popular culture, finding moments that resist and rupture hegemonic paradigms. I am also a painter . . . and I sell wine.

I’m a current PhD candidate at the University of Leeds with a diverse range of interests relating to popular culture and literature, comparative studies, genre and gender. My thesis combines these interests by looking at portrayals of masculinity in post World War Two French and British children’s literature. I previously completed my MA thesis at the University of Hull, looking at feminine power in the internationally renowned A Song of Ice and Fire series and the French historical series that inspired it: Les Rois maudits.
