My research focuses on Irish, British, and transnational modernisms. My monograph-in-progress, “Plurabilities of the City,” investigates the construction of metropolitan cosmopolitanism in modernist and contemporary novels. In addition to my monograph, I am currently working on editing a volume of essays on Virginia Woolf and Transnationalism for the Virginia Woolf-Variations series published from Edinburgh University Press. I am also interested in the intersections of modernist studies and blue humanities. My work has appeared in James Joyce Quarterly, European Joyce Studies, Modernism/Modernity Print+, and various edited collections.
