Hello! I'm a second year PhD student at Stony Brook University. After receiving my undergraduate degree from Drake University in Des Moines, IA, I completed the MA in English: 1850 to the Present program at King's College London. Continuing to focus primarily on 19th-century literature and Modernism, I've slowly begun taking an interest in other discourses as well. Currently, I'm interested in new media studies (especially regarding emerging trends on YouTube), digital mapping, and queer theory.
