She is the author of two academic articles, “Heathcliff’s Abject State in Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights” and “From Newgate to the New World: A Study of London’s Transported Female Convicts.” An article on spectular violence in Christopher Marlowe's Tamburlaine plays is forthcoming in Marlowe Studies.
