I received my PhD in English from Northeastern University in 2015. My research and teaching span late Victorian and Edwardian literature, postcolonial and Anglophone literature, and ecocriticsm and literary animal studies. Prior to my current position as Lecturer in the SAGES Program at Case Western Reserve University, I was a visiting assistant professor at Stetson University, 2016-2017, and an assistant professor at Bunker Hill Community College. My article on colonial friendship in E. M. Forster’s A Passage to India and a book chapter on animal-human relations in J. R. Ackerley’s My Dog Tulip were published in 2016. Currently I am at work on two new articles: on the small spaces of colonial Hong Kong in Shih Shu-Ching’s novel City of the Queen and on human intervention as natural disaster in H. G. Well’s The Island of Doctor Moreau, for the Global South Journal and an edited collection on Victorian environmental nightmares respectively.
