Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Virginia
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, and is forthcoming on the Modernism/modernity Print Plus platform.
I received my PhD from Harvard University's Department of English in 2017. My book manuscript, Profaning Acts: The Drama of Religion on the Modern Stage, explores how the theater’s passage into modernity inspired new fascination with religious beliefs and practices. I have taught courses at the College of the Holy Cross, where I was a Visiting Assistant Professor from 2018–2019; Harvard College, where I was a Lecturer in History & Literature from 2017–2018; and Emerson College. 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.
