Under Dr. Hill, my primary interest is in unearthing the history of yaoi, a style of art and literature depicting male-male homosexuality produced for and consumed by a female audience that has gained popularity across the globe thanks to the internet. Though in its modern form it can be traced to post-World War II Japan, its roots lie as far back as the tenth and eleventh centuries, and I suspect there is much we can learn about art, capitalism, and the transnational movement of ideas by studying this curious facet of the internet subculture.

Beyond being a historian, I also studied mathematics in undergrad, and focused in outdoor and experiential education while studying to become a teacher. I'm a canoe tripper, Dungeons and Dragons fanatic, cross-stitcher, and martial artist. You can find me training with Queen's Recreational Haidong Gumdo, guiding trips for Camp Outlook, and biking around wearing a hat with cat ears, though hopefully not all at the same time.
