For the last decade, my research has focused on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature and mathematics. I examine how this relationship opens up new perspectives and thereby re-conditions how we relate to history, futurity, and "the human."
More recently, I have been focusing on "the global ecodigital divide." This study examines the long historical connections between technology, systemic racism, and ecological destruction, from the transatlantic slave trade to present-day digital colonialism.
In the classroom, I teach literature, rhetoric and composition, the history of media, digital culture, and digital humanities. I am trained to teach online and in person. I have also designed several service learning courses ("Social Justice and Digital Media"). All of my classes include hands-on activities. So if you take a class with me, you can definitely expect to make something (in addition to writing essays, of course!).
Last, I'm always working on something new: reading a new author, learning a new song, designing a new class, trying a new recipe, or hiking a new trail. Right now, I'm fulfilling a dream of mine that is several years old: I'm adapting Romantic-era poems to video games in Unity. This should be good!
