My research focuses on the intersections of the material and literary worlds of the Anglo-Saxons. My dissertation examines the depictions of material objects within the poems of the Exeter Book, as well as the impact of the Book as a physical artifact of that culture. Additionally, I have a strong interest and background in digital humanities, especially in the area of digital access of manuscripts and other unique cultural artifacts.
I am also involved in the life of the English department and the University as a whole. For two years, I served as both the president of the Medieval Studies Student Association and as Graduate Assistant for the Feminist Research Institute. I also serve as a technical assistant for the Institute for Medieval Studies, and am currently the Graduate Assistant for the Department of English Language and Literature, where I am working on a complete relaunch of the department's web presence.
When not writing or fixing a website, I can be found playing games of various electronic and non-electronic varieties and hanging out with my two cats, Athena and Æþeling, or driving around the state of New Mexico.
