I am a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where I teach first year writing, tutor, and administer the Communication Center as Assistant Director. My research fields include writing center studies, multimodal writing pedagogy, and medieval and early modern romances.

I earned my Ph.D. in English from Emory University. My dissertation studies disguise as a self-fashioning mode in Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte Darthur and Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene. With this project, I am most interested in articulating early modes of individuality that don’t rely solely on conventional notions of the Renaissance as a “rebirth” or “swerve.”
