I have taught widely at various colleges and universities in New England and have taught at Marymount since the Fall of 2018. I specialize in the high Victorian period, as well as colonial and post-colonial literature and theory. My research revolves around the British women writers of the Raj period and their use of India as a cultural commodity. Currently, my  research interests have involved the study of epigenetics and the idea of inherited trauma in literary discourse.
