Research Interests

Early modern English drama and poetry, Edmund Spenser, Shakespeare, military history, medievalism.


I am in the fifth year of my PhD and am writing my dissertation on chivalry and nostalgia in early modern literature with an emphasis on Spenser’s Faerie Queene. Aside from the Renaissance, I’m also quite interested in samurai cinema after Kurosawa and just about anything involving Vikings. I enjoy puns and classic rock a little too much, and own bonsai trees named Robert Plant and Roger Daltrey.
