Her book about women Romantic poets, titled Women, Epic, and Transition in British Romanticism, was published by the University of Delaware Press in 2011. Her published articles in ELH, Genre, Philological Quarterly, and The Wordsworth Circle have investigated the poetry of Robert Southey, Mary Russell Mitford, and Lord Byron in context with 18th- and 19th-century views of revolution, world empires, natural sciences, and theater productions. Her current projects involve researching Mary Russell Mitford's success with the royal theatres, and experimenting with TEI-XML coding to produce digital scholarly editions of Mitford’s plays.
