I received my PhD from the University of North Texas in December 2017. My research focuses on the relationship between philosophy, theology, and literature in early modern England. I am especially interested in literary representations of beauty and ugliness and how those representations shaped early modern aesthetics. My article, "'Here Is Beauty Changed to Ugly Whoredom': Calvinist Theology and Neoplatonic Aesthetics in The Changeling" was published in Renaissance Drama in Spring 2019. I teach classes on composition, literary interpretation, world literature, British literature, and Shakespeare.
