AboutI’m an English literature Ph.D. student at Stony Brook University. My work explores representations of murder in American gothic literature and horror films from the 19th-century to the neoliberal era. Prior to joining the doctoral program at Stony Brook, I worked as a high school teacher within the NYC public school system. This invaluable experience has led me to develop a passionate and continuing interest in pedagogical practice.
Outside of my academic life, I’m a podcast aficionado, tea addict, board game champion, and novice yogi. Some of my favorite days are spent going to the theatre.
