I am an Assistant Professor (Teaching Stream) in the Department of English, as well as the Director of Graduate Writing Support in the Faculty of Arts & Science.
My teaching focuses primarily on scholarly writing. Working with graduate students across Arts & Science, I run clinics, peer-review sessions and roundtables on writing strategies and skills. I also lead writing groups and camps designed to help graduate students begin, continue and finish their dissertations, articles, proposals and other documents. In the Department of English, I teach narrative theory and twentieth- and twenty-first century literature.
My research specializes in narratology, Literature & Science Studies, and modern and contemporary British and Irish fiction, though I have also published on American and Canadian literature, on Shakespeare, and on narrative in science communication.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
