I am Assistant Professor of German at Oklahoma State University. After receiving my Ph.D. from the Department of Germanic Studies at the University of Chicago in May 2019, I held a two-year position as an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of German Studies at Dartmouth College.

My research centers on the poetics of knowledge in the long nineteenth century. I am currently finishing my first book manuscript—Recognizing Reality: German Realism and the Transmission of Knowledge—which charts the media historical and epistemological underpinnings of realist narrative prose. I am also at work on a second book project, From Stereotype to Isotype: Media, Individuality, and Society, which traces out the media history of “typological” thought in German and American science, graphic design, and literature. My other interests encompass Goethe reception, media theory, the history of philology, and the history of science.
