Visiting Assistant Professor, College of the Holy Cross
I teach and write about modern and contemporary drama. My research interests include theater and performance studies, transatlantic modernism, and world theater. My writing has appeared in venues including Theatre Journal, Modern Drama, Theatre History Studies, and American Theatre.
I received my PhD from Harvard University's Department of English in 2017. My book manuscript, Profaning Theater: The Drama of Religion on the Modernist Stage, explores how the theater’s passage into secular modernity inspired a new fascination with the religious past. In addition to my teaching at the College of the Holy Cross, I have taught courses at Harvard College, where I was a Lecturer in the Program on History & Literature from 2017–2018, as well as at Emerson College. I have also worked as a writing tutor at the Harvard Extension School. From 2013–2016, I served as the Executive Director of the Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research at Harvard, where I was also Assistant Director from 2012–2013.
