I hold a PhD in Education from the University of British Columbia, as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees in Piano Performance and Composition from the University of Victoria and University of British Columbia. My current research explores how disability in international piano competitions brings about a productive convergence between musical virtuosity and vulnerability. I serve as a Field Editor on disability issues for the Public Philosophy Journal and am working with Melanie Hibbert-Bown of the Intersectionality Network to heighten awareness of, and responsiveness to issues around inclusion and equity in higher education.

I’m a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Critical Studies at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus. I earned a Ph.D. in English Literature from Western University, following my M.A. and H.B.A. from the University of Toronto.My fields of interest include Transatlantic Modernism, 20th-Century British & Irish literature, Interdisciplinary Studies, and the art, politics and history of the years between the world wars. In particular, my research considers how several major modernists took part in a widespread conversation about how to reinvent culture in Europe and North America in the early twentieth century. I’ve designed and taught a range of undergraduate and graduate courses in modern literature, poetics, literary theory, drama, composition, and popular culture.
