My research focuses on American Literature, poetics, and environmental ideas. My first book, Ecology of Modernism: American Environments and Avant-Garde Poetics (U of Alabama P, 2015), focuses on modernist American literature and music in relation to environmental problems of the era between 1900-1950. I am currently working 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.
