My research and teaching focus on U.S. literature and culture in the long nineteenth century, health humanities, and gender studies. I am currently at work on a book project tentatively titled Vigorous Reforms: Women Writers and the Politics of Health in the Nineteenth-Century United States, which traces how women reformers leveraged their expertise in domestic health science to intervene in debates about sex, race, and citizenship. My scholarship has appeared or is forthcoming in American Literature, J19: The Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers, ESQ: A Journal of Nineteenth-Century American Literature and Culture, College Composition and Communication, Commonplace: The Journal of Early American Life, and the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies.
