I am currently an adjunct instructor at the University of Texas at Tyler. I graduated with a Master of Arts degree in English in May, 2017 and intend to begin a Ph.D. program in the fall of 2017. My primary focus is on nineteenth-century American/ transatlantic literature, particularly that of Emily Dickinson, transcendentalists, and American women writers.
