When I am not reading or tinkering with digital projects, you can find me teaching at Cal State Northridge. My teaching and research interests include 19th-century and contemporary American literature, popular culture, transnationalism, digital humanities & technology, race and ethnicity, and global trade. I have been published in the Journal of Transnational American Studies and have forthcoming essays in Engaging the Age of Jane Austen: Public Humanities in Practice (book), the Open Anthology of Earlier American Literature, and more.

In my free time, I work on Digital Humanities initiatives. Most recently, I joined the Andrew Mellon-funded WhatEvery1Says project, which uses machine learning methods to analyze public discourse on the humanities at large data scales. I also regularly host Wikipedia Edit-A-Thons at CSUN. In the past, I served as a Media Curator for the textbook, The American Yawp, which is an open-source American History Textbook forthcoming by Stanford University Press. In the past, I have worked as an encoder for digital archives, including the Women Writer’s Project and the Modernist Journals Project.
