I am an assistant professor of English at Scripps College. I’m affiliated with the Intercollegiate Media Studies and the Science, Technology, and Society programs of the Claremont colleges, as well as the Gender and Women’s Studies program at Scripps. I teach on topics related to early modern literature, digital humanities, history of science, and possible worlds theory.
My current research focuses on relationships between early modern poetry and mathematics and on the practical and theoretical issues around digital archives. I took a Ph.D. and M.A. in English Literature from Brown University and a B.A. in English from the University of Iowa, where I also studied Molecular Biology. I cut my digital humanities teeth at the Brown University Women Writers Project, where I began as an encoder and later worked as the project manager and textbase editor. I was also a member of the Scholarly Technology Group at Brown and worked on the Modernist Journals project. Prior to Scripps, I taught at Harvey Mudd College as a fellow and visiting assistant professor.
