As Scholars Advisor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, I work with department colleagues in the Honors College to facilitate curriculum and programming for honors students and merit scholars. As honors faculty, I teach courses on identity, belonging, and citizenship, with an emphasis on writing. And with partners across campus I coordinate UNC Charlotte’s nationally competitive awards agenda, drawing on my experience with external fellowships.

My research interests include early modern drama, transnational and multilingual literature, and book history & bibliography.
