I am a doctoral candidate currently writing my dissertation on how late 18th and early 19th century Americans conceptualized broad ideas of experience and possibility. I also teach in the department — most frequently first-year writing, but also literature classes such as mystery fiction and early American literature. Outside of the classroom, I am fascinated by games of all kinds.
