Welcome!

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 at work on a book manuscript—Recognizing Reality: German Realism and the Transmission of Knowledge—which charts the media historical and epistemological underpinnings of realist narrative prose. My other interests encompass Goethe reception, media theory, the history of philology, and the history of science.
