My academic interest are incredibly varied between 17th century and contemporary literature. I focus on gender and historical context. I am recently married to a Bio-medical Engineer PhD student and together we have a wonderful daughter who has aspirations of being an astrobiologist who teaches dance on the weekend. I enjoy camping and hiking in spring and summer. In the winter, my time is usually spend snowboarding with my family. In general, my time is spent with my daughter, playing video games, and reading.
