I am a PhD Candidate in the English Department at Emory University.   My literary research interests include the use of form and lyric in non-lyric genres, disability and the lyric, homosocial relationships in medieval and early modern lyric poetry, and the seventeenth-century epithalamium.  I am also interested in translation, periodization, and writing center studies, and I find a great deal of joy in composition and the teaching of writing.

I currently reside in the Atlanta area with my husband, Michael, and our son, Henry.  Alongside my more academic pursuits, I enjoy photography, writing and translating poetry, singing, and needlepoint.
