My research focuses on American Literature and environmental ideas. I am currently finishing a book on modernist American literature and music in relation to environmental problems of the era between 1900-1950. I am also beginning to work on a new book that discusses the literary, philosophical, and psychological implications of the extinction of animals. I teach courses that cover a range of American writing, as well as courses on environmental literature, contemporary philosophy, and poetry.
