I have taught at the University of Victoria since 2007. My principal areas of research and teaching are Canadian literature and American literature. I have particular interests in the literatures and cultures of the Pacific coast of Canada and the United States; in landscape and environment; and in poetry. I am also an associate editor of Canadian Literature.
