Welcome to my profile!
I am currently a Ph.D. student in medieval history at Boston College, where I began my studies in 2019. From 2015 to 2017, I attended Yale University as a Marquand Scholar
, where I received my M.A. in religion from the Divinity School. I also hold my B.A. in history and classics from Bard College, where I attended from 2011 to 2015 as an Excellence and Equal Cost Scholar
My current research interests include: early medieval translation and vernacularity; lived religion in early medieval England; the medieval reception of early Christian apocryphal/pseudepigraphical texts; and Boethius’s medieval legacy.
I previously worked in the academic publishing industry, during which time I held editorial positions at Wiley-Blackwell
, Academic Studies Press
, Yale Law School
, and Harvard Medical School
. At Yale Divinity School, I re-founded the previously defunct scholarly journal of religion Glossolalia
, and served as its editor in chief from 2016 to 2018.
