My research interests include early modern drama and travel writing, ecocriticism, and actor-network theory. In general, my work attempts to reconceive the relationships between humans and nonhumans in our own time through ecotheorizations of premodern wet worlds. I am currently completing a book manuscript on early modern waterscapes, desire, and more-than-human forms of textual and corporeal composition.
