I received my BA degree from Stony Brook University in 2007, and my Masters in English Studies from Queens College in 2010. I began my doctoral research at Durham University in the fall of 2011, supervised by Stephen Regan and Dr. Simon James. My PhD thesis focused on the portrayal of women's labour in nineteenth-and-early twentieth-century American and British Literature. My research interests include feminist theory, women's writing, American Literature, and Victorian Literature.
