About Me

I received my Ph.D. in English from Stanford University in 2012, and I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the College of Charleston and Faculty Fellow in the Honors College, where I direct the Office of Nationally Competitive Awards and help oversee the Honors First-Year Experience. I have taught students around the world, from Singapore and Siberia, to Stanford University and Stephens College. My teaching and research interests include Nineteenth and Twentieth-Century American Literature; Poetry and Poetics; Composition Pedagogy; Transnational Modernism; Autobiography; Aesthetics; Critical Theory; Age Studies; Ideas of Form and Formalism in Literature and Criticism; and Contemporary Poetry.

In 2011, the University of Iowa Press published A Broken Thing: Poets on the Line, an collection that I c0-edited and introduced. I have articles and review essays published in Modern Philology, The Wallace Stevens JournalAgni, and Agni Online. In addition, I have entries on “serial form,” “hieroglyph,” and “nativity poem” in  the new Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics (2012). You can read (and read more about) some of these projects here.
