I am a Ph.D. candidate in English at Indiana University – Bloomington, where I study history and literature in the 19th & 20th century transatlantic world.
My dissertation explores new literary representations of land ownership as a strategy for establishing national parks and other wilderness areas in the United States (1800-1914).
I have a number of academic and public-facing projects and articles, with topics ranging from literature to public lands management. The links below will direct you to my recent writing and projects. My CV can be found here.
