Originally from the United States, I have studied and worked in three countries (the US, Canada, and the UK). I came to England in 2009 to pursue my doctoral studies at King’s College London and have remained ever since. My monograph, Arthur O’Shaughnessy, a Pre-Raphaelite Poet in the British Museum was published by Routledge in March of 2016. This work considered the intersections between nineteenth-century science and poetry in the writings of O’Shaughnessy and the wider impact of interdisciplinary exchanges on the Pre-Raphaelite literary circle. I am interested in Victorian poetry, literature and science, the New Woman and women’s writings of the fin de siècle, and Gothic fiction.
