About

I am an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Information and the Department of English at the University of Toronto. 


I'm the author of a collection of short stories, Circus (McClelland & Stewart 2014); an academic monograph, Modernist Lives: Biography and Autobiography at Virginia and Leonard Woolf's Hogarth Press (Bloomsbury 2018); two collaboratively written academic books (Scholarly Adventures in Digital Humanities, Palgrave 2017, and Using Digital Humanities in the Classroom, Bloomsbury 2017); a handful of poems; some short stories; some book reviews; and many academic articles and book chapters on book and publishing history, digital archives, and 20th-century literature.

I received my BA(Hons) in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford and my PhD in English Literature and Book History from the University of Toronto. Previously I was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow and lecturer at the University of Reading and a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at Simon Fraser University. I was the 2017 SSHRC Impact Award Winner in the Talent Category. 

I was born in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, the traditional territory of the Kelly Lake First Nation. I currently live and work on the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. This meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and I am grateful to live and work on this land.
