About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in English literary studies at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where I study children’s literature, aesthetic theory, and literature and psychology. My current project brings these interests together to explore the intersections between reading and play in nineteenth- and twentieth-century children’s books. I also hold an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from New York University and enjoy writing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in addition to making visual art.
