About

I currently serve as Head of Humanities & History in the Columbia University Libraries. Previously, I held positions as a librarian and faculty member at Fairfield University and Haverford College. My doctoral dissertation, completed at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, focused on the role of language and fantasy in Anglophone Decadent fiction and illustration. My scholarly interests include Decadent literature and art, book studies, literary doodling, comparative media studies, and Appalachian literature.
