My current research interests include contemporary poetry and the environment, temporality, and animals. I am also interested in representations of children in literature, in addition to working on a monograph leading out of my PhD project, on medievalism in Australian poetry. I teach British Literature, Postcolonial Literature, and classes in Written Proficiency.
