I’m a Lecturer at Rowan University with a Ph.D. in English from Temple University. In 2017, I completed a dissertation on modernist fiction, early ecology, and the Anthropocene; I’m currently a Fellow with Rowan’s NEH-funded Cultivating the Environmental Humanities group; and I occasionally dabble in DH.
My course on “cli-fi” has been featured in Reuters, The Atlantic and The Chronicle of Higher Education. I wrote a bit about that course on Medium. My essay “An Imperialist Inherits the Earth: Howards End in the Anthropocene” appears in MLQ, and my chapter on early ecology and climate change in the future histories of H.G. Wells and Olaf Stapledon is forthcoming in the collection Modernism and the Anthropocene.
This academic year I’m working with New Jersey Council of Humanities as a Public Scholar for the “Humanities to Go” project, where I’m offering a workshop titled “Climate Change Fiction–Just for Fun or Forecasting the Future?”
