I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of English at Emory University, where I research and teach poetry, philosophy, and cultural studies―especially at the intersection of gender, language, and power. I’ve held editorial fellowships at W.W. Norton, Yale University Press, and Emory’s Beck Center for Digital Scholarship, and my editorial work in public-facing humanities is supported in part by a grant from the Mellon Foundation. After earning my degree in spring 2019, I hope to build a publishing career acquiring smart books in the humanities and social sciences.
When I’m not reading, I’m probably reading. Recent favorites include Alice Bolin’s Dead Girls, Richard Thaler’s Misbehaving, and Nicole Krauss’s Forest Dark. My feisty rescue calico keeps my feet warm, and occasionally we wander outside to chase the flowers and birds around our Atlanta, GA home.
I can be found quoting poetry in impractical dresses on Instagram @doctorduckling.
