Public Engagement & Service

I have received national and international attention for my research. I have held fellowships at the McMaster University Archives, the Folger Shakespeare Library, the University of Illinois Rare Book & Manuscript Library, and the Newberry Library. These samples represent the kind of reach that my current research has.

I am actively engaged in the profession. I serve as Co-Chair of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Science Caucus (2019-2021), and have been a member of the caucus for several years. I am also currently the Vice President of the International Eliza Haywood Society. I have served on curriculum development committees, multiple conference planning committees, and awards committees.
