I earned my MA (’15) and PhD (’19) from Penn State University, where I also completed a one-year post-doc. I study early modern British literature. My wife and I met at BYU as undergraduates in a Victorian Literature class; we have a four-year-old daughter, Darcy, and a nine-month old son, Bingley.

Research Interests

I study early modern British literature, specifically the the ways that religion, medicine, gender, and genre intersect in poetry and drama.

Teaching Interests

I teach courses on early modern British literature, Shakespeare, and early American literature. My classes often investigate issues about the body, medicine, identity, ontology, phenomenology, and epistemology.
